Gonzaga, Tomás Antônio

Gonzaga, Tomás Antônio

▪ Portuguese poet
pseudonym  Dirceu,  also spelled  Dirceo 
born Aug. 11, 1744, Porto, Port.
died c. 1810, Mozambique

      poet whose popularity in Portugal up to the 20th century was second only to that of Luís de Camões.

      Gonzaga completed his law studies at the University of Coimbra (1768) and in 1782 was appointed a judge in Vila Rica, Brazil. There he fell in love with Marília, who was mentioned in his lyrics, but on the eve of their marriage (1789) he was arrested on a charge, undoubtedly false, of conspiracy. After three years in prison he was exiled to Mozambique. His fame rests on a single book of pastoral love lyrics, Marília de Dirceu. It was published in three parts in 1792, 1799, and 1812 and chronicles his relationship with Marília. Shortly after arriving in Mozambique, Gonzaga married an heiress and remained there the rest of his life, holding important posts in the colony.
