NICOLE, Francois Leon Etienne (he-cole), Haytian poet, born near Grande Riviere in 1731 ; died in Cape Francais in 1773. He was a mulatto, but, showing in early life a love for poetry, was admitted to the Jesuit college of his native place, where he received his education, and came to Paris in 1750. Voltaire, being pleased with the young man's talent, introduced him to the encyclopedists, and Louis XV., after hearing him recite some of his verses, granted him a pension. But Nicole returned in 1769 to Cape Francais, where he obtained employment in the governor's house. He published "La romance de l'esclave" (Paris, 1766); " Fleurs des tropiques" (Cape Francais, 1770); and "Poesies nouvelles" (1772).
