About the Author:

TORU DUTT (1856-1877) and her sister, Aru, were born in Bengal, but brought up in France. Both girls were poets, as was their father, Govind Dutt. Toru died of consumption at twenty-one; sadly, so did Aru. Beside her own poetry, Toru published a volume of translations--French into English--which included work by such noted writers as Victor Hugo.
