The Kisfaludy Society (Hungarian: Kisfaludy Társaság) was a literary society in Pest, founded in 1836 and named after Károly Kisfaludy, who had died in 1830. It held monthly meetings and was a major force in Hungarian literary life, giving prizes, funding the collection of folk songs, and sponsoring the publication of works like Imre Madách's The Tragedy of Man. It dissolved in 1952.
