The Diary of Mademoiselle D'Arvers

Toru Dutt (Author)
Synopsis Set in France in the second half of the nineteenth century, The Diary of Mademoiselle D'Arvers, or Le Journal de Mademoiselle D'Arvers, is a novel of possibilities and limitations; of love, marriage and domesticity, and the heartaches and joys of growing up. Fifteen-year-old Marguerite, fresh from her convent education and extremely religious, returns to her family and experiences the first stirrings of love, only to find herself entangled in a complicated net of relationships. The story traces Marguerite's growth through adolescence to maturity and marital happiness. Written in secret and discovered by the author's father after her death, this poignant novel is a unique and unexpected outcome of the intellectual, linguistic and cultural ferment of nineteenth-century colonial Bengal.

About the author

Toru Dutt

Toru Dutt (1856-1877) is unquestionably one of the leading Indian English writers from the nineteenth century. A poet of quality, Toru Dutt’s early death put paid to a brilliant literary career. Toru was also an accomplished translator, essayist and novelist. She authored what was perhaps the first novel in English to be written by an Indian woman (Bianca or The Spanish Maiden), as also the first novel written by an Indian in French, Le Journal de Mademoiselle D’Arvers.
