Abstract: Colonization can be traced clearly in the novel Hadassah: One Night with the King. Esther is the slave girl of the Persian Empire under the reign of King Xerxes, a resident at the citadel of Susa. Having control over 127 provinces from Ethiopia to India, King Xerxes had also made Israel his colony. The Jews in captivity have been assigned menial jobs from standing at the entrance of the court and saluting the visitors to scribe writing. Both men and women have been taken as slaves to work in the royal chambers. Besides this, another group of people called Agagites suppress them. The Jews face double colonization. This paper focuses on how a ‘voice of deliverance’ emerges from the voiceless, oppressed nation. Queen Esther, a colonized woman, rises to the rank of a Queen and saves her people from getting wiped out entirely. The Jews continuously were colonized by super powers. Finally, they broke the bondages of the lurking dangers by being led by Queen Esther.
