According to Nicolas Perotti (c. 1450):     “Many who had been stung relapsed into a state  of maniacal confusion, and at the sound of music  they were so moved that they had to dance for  joy. They danced until they were completely  exhausted but many relapsed into melancholy and  lost consciousness. Amidst laughter and tears,  death itself might have ensued.” Quoted from Ririko Izumi, “The Tarantella, Its Iconography, and Franz Liszt.” DMA Dissertation,  Manhattan School of Music, 2001, pp. 9-10.

    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.
