Listen to Grant Hart’s song So Far From Heaven and write two different interpretations of it: one that is religious and one that is secular.

Grant’s 2013 album, The Argument, is based on Paradise Lost, an epic poem by John Milton. Using at least three sources, compile some research notes on Paradise Lost. Now listen to the song again.

Talk in small groups about how your research impacts your understanding of the song. Which of your earlier interpretations do you prefer? (Remember—there is no “right” answer!)
