Diane Middlebrook (April 16, 1939 – December 15, 2007) was an American biographer, poet, and teacher. She is best known for critically acclaimed biographies of poets Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath (along with Plath's husband Ted Hughes) and jazz musician Billy Tipton. Her most recent project was a biography of the Roman poet Ovid, to be published in 2008. She taught for many years at Stanford University.
Middlebrook held no illusions about the difficulties facing a biographer. In an interview on her professional life, she said "With a biography there is no straight line; all is muddled. You don't know what you know, you don't know what you don't know; if you find anything you make a note about it because some day it may find its partner. You have to have very good ways of keeping track of what you have found and where you have put it."
