Though mainly known in its Hebrew version, the book of Esther have also come to us in three Greek textual forms, the three of them significantly diverging from each other as well as from the MT. As biblical scholars know, they open with a chapter commonly referred to as "Addition A". I intend in this essay to compare this addition and especially the three following topics: the space and time structure, the narrative of the dream, and the characterization of Mordecai. In all three Greek versions, the very presence of the dream (its meaning however remains rather obscure) installs the reader in the same position as Mordecai: he has to wait to see what happens next in order to perceive some elements of interpretation and fulfilment.
