This paper presents a few insights into certain aspects of Egyptian themes in Polish literature in two short stories from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, namely ‘From the Legends of Ancient Egypt’ by B. Prus and ‘The Judgment of Osiris’ by H. Sienkiewicz, which both utilized the tool of Egyptianization in political commentary of the time.
