Amelia Murphy Writing the Essay Exercise 2 – moment of fascination 3-1-08 Moment of Fascination “I began to realize that, in fact, the pressure of all that violence (remembered, imagined, foreseen) is what those paintings are all about. Of course, not directly, in fact, quite the opposite: the literary critic Harry Berger, in his essays on Vermeer, frequently invokes the notion of the ‘conspicuous exclusion’ of themes that are saturatingly present but only as felt absence - themes that are beign held at bay, but conspicuously so. It’s almost as if Vermeer can be seen, amid the horrors of his age, to have been asserting or inventing the very idea of peace.”- Lawrence Weschler References for last essay O'Brien, Michael D. Plague Journal . San Francisco: Ignatius P, 1999. Zurbaran, Francoisco. Saint Serapion . 1628. Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford. Gardner's Art Through the Ages 12th Edition . By Fred S. Keiner and Christin J. Mamiya. Belmont: Thomson Wadsworth, 2005. Writing; Our world is full of expectations; thoughts of having the best job and marrying the most beautiful wife. Today, we can never be successful without completing the list of qualifications ranked and checked off on a clipboard. We sit anxiously while the world around us tallies up the points, to see if in fact, a person is successful, beautiful, qualified.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
