Sad news indeed. Joad's assessment of The Argument (and of Hart's greatness) is spot on. Michael Bryson's consideration of that album and David Gilmour's "Rattle That Lock" recently appeared in Milton Quarterly: "The Artist as Critic: Two Modern Musical Responses to Paradise Lost."

And many thanks to Joad for the video link.

The great Grant Hart just died. His double album The Argument is probably the most interesting and original adaptation of Paradise Lost since Dryden. Here's a live performance. The Milton section begins at 9:30.
