Artemis strikes again

If you’ve been following Reel Girl, you know I’ve been comparing Katniss Everdeen to Artemis ever since I read the book.

On the Ms. Blog today there is a post about the musician Dar Williams who I love. Her new CD “In the Time of Gods” was inspired by the Greek gods and goddesses.

Here’s what she says:

“I like Artemis the best. I’ve met that woman, and she is reviled in our society. She lives in the woods and she feeds squirrels and she has a shot gun and she hates your guts. I love her.”

Does that sound like Katniss or what?

Read the interview here. I can’t wait to hear the CD.

Here’s to hoping we run into more goddesses in books, on screens, and in music in 2012.

One thought on “Artemis strikes again

  1. Feeds squirrels/eats squirrels. Minor distinction.

    For some reason I always felt an affinity with Artemis, too, even though those who knew me would have expected me to be in Athena’s camp. I think it was the bow. I think I’m going to start archery lessons again.
