Augusta Guerdina Peaux (1859–1944) was a Dutch poet. She began her publishing career as a writer of prose fiction. In the early 1900s she started publishing poetry in magazines associated with the literary movement known as the Tachtigers, with whom she became associated. She was drawn to Scandinavia and especially Iceland, where she imagined silent landscapes without people. According to a newspaper article from 1939 she deserved to be better known, though she had no wish to seek the spotlights herself.
