Via Krugman(!), Arcade Fire’s song Abraham’s Daughter, which runs under the closing credits of The Hunger Games.

Just as the angel cried for the slaughter
Abraham’s daughter raised her bow.

That’s quite a story!

Where does it come from? Outside of the recent song, “Abraham’s Daughter” seems to refer to women who worked for the North in the US Civil War. But surely this isn’t just a song. Is there a famous volume of feminist redactions of Biblical mythology that I missed? Email me.

Update: There's Talmudic precedent for Abraham’s daughter, though perhaps not for this particular exploit.
