Abstract

This book traces Jewish, Christian and secular reception of the only biblical book not to mention God. Prominent in the Jewish tradition because of the festival Purim, Esther has also provoked and inspired Christian and secular artists, musicians and commentators for 2 millenium. Literary texts discussed include Francis Quarles' Hadassa, Nathaniel Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter, Dickens' Bleak House, and George Eliot's Felix Holt and Adam Bede.
