The book of Esther emerges from complex origins. According to David J. A. Clines, the story combines elements from numerous literary, textual, and storytelling traditions. Through the telling and retelling of the story, the book as it appears in the modern canon slowly emerges. In Esther Scroll, Clines uncovers this fascinating history by examining the book’s literary and textual elements, the story’s shape, and the shifts in meaning as new generations have retold the story and interpreted it for their own time.
