John Golden studies nineteenth-century British literature, primarily poetry, and teaches courses on Romanticism and the Victorian period at FAU. He received his Ph.D. in English from Harvard University in May 2010. His current work focuses on kinesthetic notions of form developed by nineteenth-century poets as part of a larger cultural reconsideration of physical motion as central to experience. He is also interested in the intersections of literary criticism with philosophies of language and of mind. Forthcoming publications include "Thronging the Ear: Hopkins and the Counterpoint of Prosody," to be published in Hopkins Quarterly (jointly with Victorian Poetry).
