Coloane mi guardò e aggiunse: “L'indio mi fece questa domanda che io faccio a te: se il simbolo dell'infinito è proprio a forma di otto, come la scala degli Yamanas, questo vuol dire che il mito e la scienza hanno inventato lo stesso simbolo?”.
Insomma i racconti di Coloane mettono in luce una sorprendente realtà latinoamericana, che affonda le radici nel passato coloniale, sconosciuta da tutti e forse proprio per questo molto attraente.
Non è azzardato affermare che l'opera di Coloane sia una vera e propria epica minore, minore non nel senso della qualità letteraria dei suoi modelli, ma perché racconta storie individuali, quando i grandi imperi sono finiti e l'epica maggiore è ormai consegnata alla storia della letteratura oppure alla fantascienza.

 La scia della balena - Coloane Francisco
Francisco Coloane fa ritorno con questo libro a Chiloé, la sua isola natia, dopo le avventure patagoniche narrate in Capo Horn, Terra del Fuoco e I balenieri di Quintay, anch’esse pubblicate da Guanda negli ultimi due anni.
Pure, nei libri di Coloane, compaiono spesso i fantasmi del Trauco, perfido seduttore di ragazzine, dei dannati sopravvissuti del Caleuche, la nave scomparsa nel nulla, dell’Imbunche, orribile bambino figlio di stregoni, della Pincoya, strega regina delle notti di Chiloé.
Possiamo comunque anticipare che, avanzando verso orizzonti più ampi, il protagonista scoprirà, insieme alla magia della caccia alla balena, l’esistenza di una complessa umanità a lui sconosciuta, densa di quei personaggi che invece noi conosciamo bene perché vivono in tutti i libri di questo scrittore.
