This study aims to analyze the use of parody in Jeanette Winterson’s Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and Boating for Beginners. Winterson uses parody as a means to re-contextualise and re-interpret the Biblical material in a playful manner in these two novels. Moreover, parody becomes a means for her to revise certain other texts and discourses. Due to these parodic references to other texts and discourses, the novels have an intertextual structure and they are open to a variety of interpretations instead of releasing a single meaning.
