Chapter Summary

The version of Sol's story in La Epoka represents a liminal text between the Moroccan Jewish versions of her story and the European Christian versions, including Romero's. Although it is based on an historical event that took place in Morocco, and not in Salonika, and although it narrates an episode in Jewish history, this text shares the generic elements of the 'Ladino serialized translated novel' as described by Borovaya, namely it is based on a Western source, which is para- phrased, but unnamed. La Epoka's version of Sol's story paraphrases Romero's work, but simplifies the language and sometimes changes it and the message to suit its audience. It alters the plot of Romero's version of Sol's story by creating a fictional episode with the addition of the David Salama character.
