Paul Claes (born 30 October 1943) is a Flemish writer, poet and translator.

Born in Leuven, Claes graduated in classical literature and Germanic philology (Dutch and English). He obtained a PhD in 1981, with a disseration De mot zit in de mythe on references to classical texts in the works of Hugo Claus. He worked at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (1984-1985) and the Catholic University of Nijmegen (1985-1988).

Claes made his debut as a poet in 1983 with sonnets in De zonen van de zon. His translation of T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land" (2007) includes a comprehensive commentary and a new interpretation. "La clef des Illuminations" (2008) is a new interpretation of Arthur Rimbaud's masterpiece.
