Overview

Seventeen years passed between the moment Robert M. Pirsig burst onto the literary scene with his successful debut Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, and the publication of Lila. Fedro, the phantom alter-ego who haunted the narrator of Zen, has exchanged his motorcycle for a sailboat on which he travels alone, still on his personal quest in pursuit of the Metaphysics of Quality, radically distanced from the parameters of traditional moral extremism.

 

Diecisiete años pasaron desde que Robert M. Pirsig irrumpió en el mundo literario con su exitosa ópera prima, Zen y el arte del mantenimiento de la motocicleta, hasta la publicación de Lila. Fedro, el alter ego fantasma que acosaba al narrador de Zen, ha cambiado la motocicleta por un velero en el que navega solitario, y persevera en su personal búsqueda de un sistema de pensamiento, la Metafísica de la Calidad, radicalmente alejado de los parámetros de la maniquea moral tradicional.
