The analysis of Henryk Sienkiewicz’s novella Diokles concentrates on the forms of truth in a literary work. It reveals the truth that manifests itself in the world presented, in an allegorical figure (the truth takes the shape of female curves enveloped in many curtains whose uncovering equates with finding the mystery of things). „Veracity” formed on the basis of self-revelation of metaphysical quality is also presented (it is true in itself according to Roman Ingarden). Diokles and similarly Epic of Gilgamesh revolve around limitations resulting from the human condition, which requires taking into consideration that a man can experience reality and seize truth but commensurably with the measure of human ability.
