The article uses the concept of Marx ’s commodity fetishism to uncover and describe complex relations between eroticism, political economy and psychology in "The Doll" by Bolesław Prus. The scene under analysis is when Wokulski fires from his shop a shop assistant who was overfamiliar with Izabela Łęcka. The interpretation applying the given contexts unveils political dimension of economy which Wokulski uses to overcome class barriers and also to create new boundaries which are supposed to separate the object of his love from other men.
