Egil Rasmussen (28 April 1903 - 18 June 1964) was a Norwegian author, literature critic and pianist.

Born in Bossekop village, Alta municipality, he grew up in Tromsø after Rasmussen's family moved to the city when he was 3 years old.

Rasmussen worked for many years as a lektor.[1] He received his Ph.D. in 1949. From 1948 to 1964 he was literary critic for the newspaper Aftenposten. His first literary effort was at 20 years of age when he produced the novel Østen og vesten in 1923. His last novel, Den siste skrivekaren. En norsk bygdelegende, was a dystopian vision of the future, which came out posthumously in 1966.
