Joaquim Guilherme Gomes Coelho, better known by the pseudonym Júlio Diniz, was a Portuguese writer and physician. He is considered one of the most important Portuguese novelists and a major contributor to the creation of Modern Romance in Portugal.

Júlio Diniz graduated in Medicine, but his health deteriorated, preventing him from exercising his profession. He later became a university professor, but he devoted himself mainly to literature.

He died at just 31 years old, a victim of pulmonary tuberculosis, the same disease that had taken the lives of his mother and, later, his eight brothers. The writer can be considered as a transitional writer, standing between the end of Romanticism and the beginning of Realism.


Some of his main works:

  • As pupilas do senhor reitor (1867);
  • A morgadinha dos canaviais (1868);
  • An english family (1868);
  • Os fidalgos da casa mourisca (1871);
  • Poesias (1873).


“Kindness is a rich source, which tears at the touch of the slightest emotion.” – A morgadinha dos canavais- Júlio Diniz.
