The thesis presented below is a translation from Portuguese to English of the novel O Triste Fim de Policarpo Quaresma (The Sad Fate of Policarpo Quaresma), written by the Brazilian author Lima Barreto—first serialized in 1911, then published in book format in 1915. The current translation was aided in part by two other translations: one by Robert Scott-Buccleuch, printed in 1978, and a newer translation by Mark Carlyon, published in 2011.
