Maksym Tadeyovych Rylsky (Ukrainian: Максим Тадейович Рильський; 19 March [O.S. 7 March] 1895 in Kiev – 24 July 1964 id.) was a Ukrainian poet. He began writing poems as a representative of the "pure art" doctrine, during the years when the Stalinists adopted the official doctrine of "socialist realism". In 1937 he was involved in rewriting the libretto of Mykola Lysenko's opera Taras Bulba, returning later to neo-classical forms.

Rylsky joined Communist party in 1943 and was a member of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR in 1946, being awarded the prestigious Lenin Prize in 1960, and Stalin Prize in 1943 and 1950.
