Quintin Hoare is a British leftist intellectual and literary translator. He served on the editorial board of the New Left Review for many years before he and his wife, the Croatian historian Branka Magas, resigned in 1997. He then became a director of the Bosnian Institute.[1]

Hoare edited the Pelican Marx Library, which ran to eight volumes. As a translator, he has worked in several languages, winning major awards for his translations from Italian, French and German: the John Florio Prize for Antonio Gramsci's selected political writings, the Scott Moncrieff Prize for Sartre's war diaries and the Schlegel-Tieck Prize for Hermann Grab's short stories.

Hoare's son is the historian Marko Attila Hoare.
