Abstract in Portuguese: Este artigo analisa as relações entre indivíduo e sociedade no romance Triste fim de Policarpo Quaresma, de Lima Barreto, levando em consideração as reflexões de Ian Watt e Roberto Schwarz sobre o romance realista; investiga inicialmente a constituição de Policarpo como um indivíduo no romance, desde algumas condições concretas de relativa autonomia e liberdade até a combinação ideológica que fundamenta variadamente suas ações (individualismo liberal, nacionalismo e racionalismo positivista); examina também as relações sociais que recolocam Policarpo no chão da vida concreta, a cada ação patriótica, e conclui que o romance propõe uma interpretação do problema nacional: a inexistência no Brasil de uma nação como projeto coletivo.
