I'm trying to understand how the earlier generations saw Purim. Ezrah and his B"D wrote a series of books, such as Ezrah, Divrei Hayamim and more.
Is the Purim story or Meggilat Ester mentioned in them?

In Megillah 11a, R' Dimi bar Yitzchak says that a phrase in Ezra's prayer (9:9), ויט עלינו חסד לפני מלכי פרס, refers to the events of Purim.
