René-François-Armand (Sully) Prudhomme (Paris, France, March 16, 1839 - Châtenay-Malabry, France, September 6, 1907) was a French poet and essayist, winner of the first Nobel Prize in Literature, in 1901.

Prudhomme originally studied to be an engineer, but was to turn to philosophy and later to poetry. In writing poetry, he declared it as his intent to create scientific poetry for modern times. In character sincere and melancholic, he was a member of the Parnassus school, although, at the same time, his work displays characteristics of its own.
