Germain Nouveau (31 July 1851 - 1920) was a French poet, associated with the symbolist movement. He was a friend of Rimbaud and Verlaine. In 1874 he traveled to London with Rimbaud. In 1876 he published Dixains réalistes, a parody of the Parnassians. In 1879-1881 he wrote Doctrine de l'amour a book of poems he later rejected, and was published against his wishes in 1904. He converted to catholicism and died in poverty. Among his best known poems are Les Cathédrales. Several posthumous poems and other works are collected in the Pléiade edition (Oeuvres Complètes. Pierre-Olivier Walzer (ed.) Paris: Gallimard, 1970).
