Summary/Abstract: The present text sets out to examine the transformation of the parody and satire in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. Analysis is concerned on the problem of non-fictional discourse as an important issue of the parody, which is presented as a second plan of the text. Using the parody, as analysis shows, Gulliver’s Travels undermines the imperatively established manners of speaking typical of Augustan’s epoch in England. That is why non-fictional texts are very important in Swift’s work – not only functionally but as texts framing the epoch as well.
