Henry T. Tuckerman was an American author, editor, and critic. He was quite popular in his day as a romantic, idealistic writer and commentator whose sentimental approach to understanding literature pleased many contemporaries but annoyed others, notably Edgar Allan Poe. Tuckerman's work has not aged well, and is seldom read today.

Henry Theodore Tuckerman was an influential American critic and author, first in Boston, later in New York City. Born in Boston, he attended Harvard, but poor health forced him to withdraw and travel abroad; he published a sketch-book of his experiences, and became the editor of The Boston Miscellany of Literature and Fashion. He was known for his vague, sentimental critical essays of literature and art, which were generally popular with the public and other writers. He also wrote essays, biographies, travel sketches, fiction, and introductory essays to other author's books. He had a notable and long-standing feud with Edgar Allan Poe, probably precipitated by Tuckerman's refusal to publish Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart.
