Marcellus Emants (12 August 1848 – 14 October 1923) was a Dutch novelist whose work was considered one of the few examples of Dutch Naturalism.
His writing is seen as a first step towards the renewing force of the Tachtigers towards modern Dutch literature, a movement which started around the 1880s.
His most well-known work is A Posthumous Confession, published in 1894, translated by J.M.Coetzee.
