Jibanananda Das was an Indian poet, writer, novelist and essayist in the Bengali language. Popularly called "Rupashi Banglar Kabi'', Das is probably the most read poet after Rabindranath Tagore and Kazi Nazrul Islam in Bangladesh and West Bengal. 

His first poem was published in 1919 in a magazine in Barishal; first collection of poems, Jhara Palak  came out in 1927. Budhodeb Bose  was the first to discuss Jibanananda's poetry in Pragati. Later on, Buddhadeva and his poetry magazine Kavita played a seminal role in establishing Jibanananda as perhaps the most influential of the post-Tagore poets. Many poems, and all the prose fictions that Jibanananda wrote were discovered after his death in 1954. Buddhadeva Bose alone had published 111 (out of a total of 167) poems of Jibanananda when the poet was alive.

He is best known for poetry that reveals a deep love of nature and rural landscapes, tradition and history, Jibanananda is also strikingly urban, and introspective, his work centring on themes of loneliness, depression and death. He was a master of word-images, and his unique poetic idiom drew on tradition but was startlingly new."

His best known collections of poetry include Banalata Sen (1942) and Rupasi Bangla (Beautiful Bengal, written in 1934 but published in 1957).
