    The genre of the book of Esther is Narrative History. Its author is anonymous however; some believe Mordecai, (Esther’s cousin and guardian), wrote it. It was written approximately B.C. in Persia. Esther became queen in B.C. The key personalities are Esther, Mordecai, King Ahasuerus (or Xerxes), and Haman. Esther's Decision. A. Mordecai's mourning. 1. He and the rest of the Jews lament their fateWhen Mordecai learned all that had happened, he tore his clothes and put on sackcloth and ashes, and went out into the midst of the city.
