Zangwill coined the term "melting-pot" with this work, but strictly for European-Americans only. It's an interesting play that makes you think about current sociopolitical tensions and relations. A must-read for any American interested in American lit or social politics. The product itself as an eBook is great, so do not mistake my rating of the plot (3 stars) as a rating for the format.
I stopped reading this play over and over waiting for the bottom to fall out--which it does--only to have it pop back in again! Written in the early 1900s, this play deals with many of the darker themes that its contemporaries do (and themes of relevance 100 years later!): class warfare, genocide, love, family relations, and racism. But it has one major difference. This play shows the spirit of someone who, though broken and battered by life, refuses to give up. It is absolutely one of my new all-time favorites. And the best part of the book may be the historical essays that follow the text and put the play in the context of its time and place. It is absolutely a must-read!
While the play itself is not a classic, historically Zanwill's play locates many of the issues raised by the metaphor of the melting pot of multicultural immigrants. The social/political issues raised by Zangwill remain important. For this reason, it is worthy of continual study.
Very readable. Additional amendments ver helpful.
This book is interesting but very difficult to understand because of the old English the author used. If you find someone to simply the story in a summary for you, it will be easier to understand while reading other than that you might keep going back and forth trying to understand what some of the characters are trying to say.
It is a classic!!!
I wasn't in the mood to read a play, but the plot sounded intriguing, all about a Jewish musician in love with a shiksa. The interesting thing is the woman is initially anti-Semitic, but the musician comes from the same town she does in Russia, where most of his family was murdered in a pogrom years ago. His kind manner and obvious trauma turns her around--a little too quickly for me, but after all this is only a three-act play.

My only real complaint is that dialogue is written phonetically whenever someone speaks with an accent. I'd rather just be told they're speaking with a heavy German or Irish accent than have it spelled out in unintelligible dialect. Worse yet, the grandmother's lines are entirely in Yiddish without any translation. Even if she never speaks English when the play is actually performed, it would be nice to know what she's saying while just reading the thing.
