Abstract

The book of Esther receives rightly the mark of a wisdom-story. Although the sort novel has a profane and anthropocentric character, we cannot call this tale un-Jewish or unbiblical. Casting a glance at Proverbs and Ecclesiastes Esther fits well in certain rabbinical lines of thought. It is worth wile to recognize the book as a satire. This throws a new light upon several traits of the much-discussed narrative.
