Émile Goudeau in Montmartre, 18th arrondissement, Paris, France: Literary Île-de-France #3

Émile Goudeau (1849—1906) was born in Périgueux and was a journalist, novelist and poet. In 1879 he established the Cercle des Hydropathes, which was dedicated to the bohemian life, and met at the Chat Noir cabaret, where a vast quantity of absinthe was the tipple of the day.

His rusty tomb is in the small cemetery of Saint Vincent in Montmartre.
