The year 1647 in literature involved some significant events.
- Thomas Hobbes becomes tutor to the future Charles II of England.
- Plagiarist Robert Baron publishes his Deorum Dona, a masque, and Gripus and Hegio, a pastoral, which draw heavily on the poems of Edmund Waller and John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi. The masque claims to have been performed before "Flaminius and Clorinda, King and Queen of Cyprus, at their regal palace in Nicosia," a fantasy with no relation to the actual history of Cyprus.
- "Beaumont and Fletcher" - Comedies and Tragedies... (first folio collection of the plays of John Fletcher and his various collaborators)
- René Descartes - Les principes de la philosophie (French version of the original Latin work)
- John Lilburne - Rash Oaths
- John Lilly - Christian Astrology
- Thomas May - The History of the Parliament of England
