Summary/Abstract: Phraseology, as a young scientific discipline, has been captivating more and more researchers who dedicate themselves to researching literary body of texts of both local as well as foreign authors, concentrating oft en on a type of comparative analysis or problems of relations of phraseological components – subordinate/auxiliary in relation to the main semantic center of the phraseme, that is, establishing the polysemy of the phraseme, its structure, possibility of modification, etc, followed in many texts and literary genres. Our approach in this paper is not based as such. Namely, the methodological approach is directed towards a morpho-syntactic analysis that treats phrasemes on the level of sentence – proverb (maxim and saying) as well as phrasemes on the level below sentence. Classifying phrasemes on the latter lever is done according to types of words in the role of phraseological components and their function. Thematically, they cover various conceptual groups. In the excerpted body of texts, as phraseme components, one finds human body parts and abstract glossary, by which one considers phraseological components which denote human mental state, situations in the life, etc. This paper presents an attempt of a phraseological analysis of Fra Antun Knežević's Varica in terms of understanding his utterance, more precisely, his writing style which is full of picturesque, expressive, flamboyant and, as such, is abundant with phraseological-maxim aspects, specific folk proverbs, having in mind a crucial influence of folk literature on his work.
