Zoraida’s Flight: A Bid for Freedom or Betrayal? Discussion Topic
The author of The Law and Cervantes likens Zoraida to Marcela: "Like Marcela, Zoraida is a very independent and strong-willed young woman--she too wants her freedom. Her conversion to Christianity and flight with the captive has led her to betray her own father, Agi Morato." Do you agree with Zoraida's decisions with regard to her father? Use specific evidence from the novel, and include an analysis of specific words and or lines. Also be sure to include a rebuttal of the opposing view.
