My name is Aaron Hatrick; I am from Zephyrhills, Fla. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in political science and English from the University of Florida and a Master of Arts in English from Baylor University. I stayed on at Baylor to pursue a doctorate in English in which I am currently ABD (all but dissertation). In my dissertation, I am tracing the influence of John Donne through the poetry of Alexander Pope with an emphasis on the satires. In addition to pursuing my degrees at Baylor, I taught at the university for five years, first composition, then English and American literature.
