The Concise Literary Encyclopedia (Russian: Краткая литературная энциклопедия) was a Soviet encyclopedia of literature published in nine volumes between 1962 and 1978. It contains 12,000 articles.

Russian scholar John Glad wrote, "For the specialist in Russian literature, this is undoubtedly the most basic an important reference tool to appear from the Soviet Union.[1] Scholars Barry Lewis and Michael Ulman wrote, "despite its shortcomings, must be considered an achievement comparable to the best Western productions of its type."[2]
