"The Constant Nymph" is a novel by Margaret Kennedy which tells the story of a teenage girl who falls in love with a family friend who eventually marries her cousin. The two girls show mutual jealousy over their common love for the man.

The novel was a best-seller after it was first published, becoming the first novel of a genre that became might be called 'Bohemian'. A significant part of its success was due to its (for the time) shocking sexual content, describing, as it does, scenes of adolescent sexuality and noble savagery in the Austrian Tyrol.

The novel was adapted into a play by Kennedy and Basil Dean.
