Michael Madhusudan Dutta was a popular 19th century Bengali poet and dramatist. He was born in Sagordari on the bank of the Kopotaksho river, a village in Keshobpur Upozilla under Jessore district.

From an early age, Dutta aspired to be an Englishman in form and manner. Though he was born in a sophisticated Hindu family, he took Christianity as young man, much to the ire of his family, and adopted the first name Michael. In his childhood, he was recognized by his teachers as a precious child with a gift of literary talent. His early exposure to English education and European literature at home and at his college inspired him to imitate the English in taste, manners and intellect.

Since his adolescence, he started believing that he was born on the wrong side of the planet, and that his society was unable to appreciate his intellect. He also believed that the West would be more respective to his creative genius.

Michael was an ardent follower of the famous English poet Lord Byron. So, after adopting Christianity, he went to Europe and started composing poetry and drama almost entirely in English. They showed his higher level of intellectual ability. However, he failed to gain the right appreciation. To his utter frustration, he found that he was not esteemed as a native writer of English literature. Out of his frustration, he composed a sonnet in Bangla “Kopotaksha Nad” which earned him huge reputation in Bangla. Gradually he could realize that his identity lay in Bengal and he was a sojourner in Europe.

Afterwards he regretted his fascination for England and the West. He came to Bengal and devoted himself to Bangla literature from this period. He is the poet to write the first Bangla epic Meghnad Badh Kabya.
