Per Højholt (22 July 1928 – 15 October 2004) was a Danish poet. Højholt had his debut in 1948 when he published "De nøgne" (The Naked Ones), a series of poems which appeared in the magazine Heretica. His first collection was Hesten og solen, featuring religiously inspired poems.[1] A major work came with Poetens hoved (The Head of the Poet) which appeared in 1963. This collection took a Modernist stance and meant a break with late Symbolism.[1] Although a highly experimental and unorthodox writer, he beceame a popular poet.[2] This is not least due to Gittes monologer (Gitte's Monologues). He toured the country with his recitals of these monologues which received considerable attention.[1]

Højholt was awarded "Den store pris" from the Danish Academy in 1982 and the Holberg Medal in 1997.[2] A recognized writer, he was included in the Danish Culture Canon in 2006 for the poem, "Personen på toppen".[3]

Højholt was a librarian by profession and worked as such until 1966.[1]
