Téodor de Wyzewa, born as Teodor Wyżewski (12 September 1862 – 15 April 1917), was a writer, critic, and translator of Polish descent, born in Russia, who emigrated to France in 1869. He was a leading exponent of Polish origin of the Symbolist movement in France.

With Édouard Dujardin he created La Revue Wagnérienne in 1885. In 1901, he founded the Société Mozart with Adolphe Boschot (fr) and Georges de Saint-Foix (fr). He frequently contributed articles on European literature and music to the Revue des deux mondes and Le Temps, among many other periodicals. His translation of Jacobus de Voragine's Golden Legend into modern French made it available to a wide audience once more.

He was married to Marguerite Terlinden, the daughter of Belgian painter Félix Terlinden and the sister-in-law of the art critic and historian Pierre Francastel.
