    Overview

    Summary
    The innocent, impoverished lovers, lame Fishke and blind Hodel, are beset by the superstition, prejudice and greed present in a late nineteenth century shtetl in tsarist Russia. The benevolent and enlightened bookseller Mendele helps and encourages them in their dream of escaping to a freer life in Odessa.
