Getting Dumped Intro

This course was inspired by Taylor Swift's "The Tortured Poets Department" and examines the heartbreak of romantic rejection. We'll read "heartbreak" poetry and write some of our own.
Poems that make us cry are a social kind of poetry. Tears drop in solitude but sorrow is felt universally. Your own exploration of heartbreak can also be a social act.
As you read the tortured poets, feel the companionship that comes from misery shared. And then catch your own misery as a offering of companionship.
For the study and focus of this course, choose a heartbreak—whether fictional or real, fresh or remembered.
