Louis Marie Anne (Louis) Couperus (The Hague, June 10, 1863 – De Steeg, July 16, 1923) was a Dutch novelist and poet of the late 19th and early 20th Century. He is usually considered to be one of the foremost figures in Dutch literature.

Louis Couperus was born in The Hague, the Netherlands in 1863, as the 11th child of John Ricus Couperus, retired Councellor of the former Dutch East Indies and his maid Catharina Geertruida Reynst. In 1891 he married his niece Elisabeth Baud. Her grandmother and his father were brother and sister. Shortly after their marriage the couple started to travel a great deal, all over the world. In France he stayed for a time in Nice, working as a writer. The first World War forced Couperus to go to the Netherlands. In 1923 Louis Couperus settled near Rheden, in a house given to him by friends and admirers. He died there in July 1923 at age 60 suffering from prophylaxis of the lung and Sepsis. Shortly before he was appointed Knight in the Order of the Dutch Lion.
