Inta Miške Ezergailis (11 September 1932 in Riga, Latvia – 1 January 2005, in Ithaca, New York), was a Latvian-American professor emerita of German literature at Cornell University from 1969 to 1999, specializing in Thomas Mann and contemporary women writers. In 1965, she began graduate study at Cornell University and after earning her doctorate in 1969, she was appointed to the Cornell faculty as an assistant professor of German literature.

In addition to books, she published numerous articles, in English and Latvian, in scholarly and intellectual periodicals.

The last volume is devoted to her mother, who died of dementia.
