Toru Dutt (1856–1877)

Dutt, Toru (dut). A Hindoo poet (1856–77). She received a good European education, and she translated into English many French poems,—from Béranger, Gautier, Coppée, etc.,—and a collection of these was published as ‘A Sheaf Gleaned in French Fields’ (1876). She also rendered into English some of the ‘Ancient Ballads of Hindustan.’ She wrote in French a story: ‘Miss d’Arvers’s Diary.’ (See Critical and Biographical Introduction).
