This Special Issue of ABEI Journal “Word Upon World:  Half   a Century of John Banville’s Universes” , celebrates a writer’s life devoted to translating worlds into words. His novels  reflect  an  interior  journey  in  the  search  of  being  true  to  oneself.  To  reveal  the  many

layers of  human interaction Banville plays with different genres; in his narratives he manages

all  kinds  of  tricks  with  characters,  time  and  space;  painful  memories  are  mixed  with  shrewd

humour  calling  up worlds  in which a  whole  range  of  emotions  is  beautifully  presented.  His prose  is  like  Watteau’s:  silken companies  move  in luminous  landscapes  where  dark  shadows lurk and loom.
