Emil Boyson (born 4 September 1897 in Bergen, died in 1979) was a Norwegian poet, author, and translator. Although Boyson formally debuted in 1927 with a prose book Sommertørst (Summer Thirst), he was primarily known for his poetry. His actual debut was in 1920 under the pseudonym Karl Snemo, with publication of Åpning til regnbuen (Opening to the Rainbow).

His poetry was written in a modernistic style, with a language differing from everyday language, but often maintaining traditional form and stanza patterns.
