The imagistic of Romanian Danube is part of the one of the European Union, being based on the affinities of culture, religion and race. Ștefan Bănulescu is, above all, a storyteller who thinks his texts according to the genius of the ancient rules. The paper aims at correlating the historical literature suggestion with the literature convention, boundless by definition. The result is a world with the conspicuousness of the old, unusual and multiple ethnicities, overlapping with the traditional story patterns, all in a fairy of images, partly real, partly fantastic.
