Charles Hubert Sisson CH (22 April 1914 – 5 September 2003) was a British writer, best known as a poet and translator. As a poet he first came to light through the London arts review, X, founded by the painter Patrick Swift and the poet David Wright. He was also a novelist and critic. He worked as a civil servant, and wrote a standard text The Spirit of British Administration (1959) arising from his work and a comparison with other European methods.

He was born and brought up in Bristol, and was a student at the University of Bristol where he read English and Philosophy. He reacted against the prevailing intellectual climate of the 1930s, particularly the Auden Group, preferring to go back to the anti-romantic T. E. Hulme, and to the Anglican tradition. He joined the Ministry of Labour in 1936. During World War II he served in the British Army in India.

He was appointed a Companion of Honour in 1993.
