Satyendranath Dutta  (1882-1922), a Bengali poet, is considered the 'wizard of rhymes' (or-'chhonder jadukar' in Bengali). He was an expert in many disciplines of intellectual enquiry including medieval Indian history, culture, and mythology.
He was the son of Rajaninath Dutta, who was a trader. He was born at Nimta, 24 Parganas (north) on February 11, 1882. His grandfather, Akshay Kumar Datta, was a great thinker, Brahmo social reformer and writer who was the guiding spirit of the Tattwabodhini Patrika.
After passing the school leaving examination from the Central Collegiate School, he received his graduate level education from the General Assembly's Institution in Kolkata. Although he left (what is now) Scottish Church College without taking a degree, his training there helped him immensely for the future. After being unsuccessful to join the ranks of his father in their family business, he quit that to devote his energies entirely to scholarly pursuits.
He composed poems and initially composed poems for the Bengali magazine Bharati. Although his stylistic nuances during this stage reflect the influence of Michael Madhusudan Dutt, Akshay Kumar Boral and Debendranath Sen, his later poetry illustrates a greater resonance with the poetry of Rabindranath Tagore.
Dutta wrote under multiple pseudonyms, including Nabakumar, Kaviratna, Ashitipar Sharma, Tribikram Varman and Kalamgir.
He died a very untimely death on June 25, 1922, aged only 40. Rabindranath Tagore has immortalised Satyendranath in a poem written after his death.
His books of poems are Sabita (The Sun, 1900), Sandhiksan (The Opportune Moment, 1905), Benu O Bina (Flute and Lyre, 1906),  Hom Shikha (The Blaze of the Yagya, 1907), Fuler Fosol (The Harvest of Flowers, 1911), Kuhu O Keka (Song of Cuckoo and Peacock, 1912), Tulir Likhon (Written with a Brush, 1914), Obhro-Avir (1916), Hasantika (1919), Bela Sheser Gan (Song at Dusk, 1923), Biday-Arati (Farewell Hymn, 1924), Kavyasanchayan (Collected Poems, 1930), Shishu-Kavita (Children's Poetry, 1945), Bhorai (The song of Dawn).
Other works : Janmaduhkhi (Destined to be sad from birth - novel, 1912), Chiner Dhup (Chinese incense - essays, 1912), Rangamalli (play, 1913).
