Analyzing Laura LaPierre’s essay

1) I think Laura provides a very well scripted out and in depth description of her context. I believe that Laura really didn’t have to add to much more to her essay, she describe the main points very well and ended the essay very well and left you thinking about lots of different things such as what it would be like to be in her position and to face all the different challenges she is facing.

2) I believe that the essay would have been different in third person because there wouldn’t have been as much detail given as in first person. For example how she said she was fighting back the tears when she was explain her story. There might not have been as much emotion shown.

3) Some of the details she explained were the physical features of the hospital and how they were all the same and were plain. Also she explained stuff such as the smells of the hospital and how it was “antiseptic-smelling” and she grew accustomed to the smell. I believe she did a fairly good job explaining detail, I don’t think there was to much more she could go in depth with.

4) I think that the whole essay was explained in depth as a flashback of past events that occurred in Laura’s life. I personally didn’t catch any other spots in the essay that she referred to using flashbacks as a part of detail to explain her essay.

5) I think the importance and experience of this essay is that Laura did a very god job explaining her story and showed the in depth detail of what a hospital may be like and how some things such as cancer can impact someone’s life so tremendously. I also think it shows that you should cherish life because you never know what could happen at any given moment in…...

Laura Mulvey

..."Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema" - Laura Mulvey In her "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema" Laura Mulvey utilizes psychoanalysis theory as a "political weapon" to demonstrate how the patriarchic subconscious of society shapes our film watching experience and cinema itself. According to Mulvey the cinematic text is organized along lines that are corresponding to the cultural subconscious with is essentially patriarchic. Mulvey argues that the popularity of Hollywood films is determined and reinforced by preexisting social patterns which have shaped the fascinated subject. Mulvey's analysis in "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema" combines semiotic methodology of cinematic means of expression with psychoanalytic analysis of desire structures and the formation of subjectivity. The semiotic end of Mulvey's analysis enables the deciphering of how films produce the meanings they produce, while the psychoanalytic side of the article provides the link between the cinematic text and the viewer and explains his fascination through the way cinematic representations interact with his (culturally determined) subconscious. Mulvey's main argument in "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema" is that Hollywood narrative films use women in order to provide a pleasurable visual experience for men. The narrative film structures its gaze as masculine. The woman is always the object of the reifying gaze, not the bearer of it (this has something reminiscent of John Berger's "Ways of......

The Killing of Laura

...“The Killing of Laura” In “The Killing of Laura” Carolyn Weaver asserts that in Laura’s romance relationship with John O’Neil, Johns will is what killed Laura and defeated her will of power. In this case of murder there were two factors that led to Laura’s death, cultural and personal. Traditional male socialization provoked the killing and Laura’s attitude and insecurity towards life made her an easy target. Social attitudes facilitate domestic violence. On the twenty-fourth day of October, 1977 Laura Ellen Weaver was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, John Oneil. Laura was dressed in her pajamas, in her parents’ kitchen, sitting at the table trying to sort out the details of her numerous attempts to end her relationshoip with John, her past lover and aggressor for the past year. Her previous attempts were unsuccessful. Laura had informed her friend the day before that she was bad at confrontation, and so this is why she was in such a predicament. Her contemplation was inteerupted by a tap to the window caused by John. She opened the door to talk to him; having broken up with the man, she still cared for him as a friend. Laura had no notion that hidden in John’s jacket pocket was a knife he had taken from his home. Laura’s father went downsatirs to turn off the kitchen light, unaware anyone in his home was awake. He stumbbled upon John and Laura’s conversation. He told John to go home and talk to Laura tomorrow, for it was far too late in the day. Her father returned......

Laura Ingalls

...Page 1 The Life of Laura Ingalls Wilder Laura Ingalls wrote the way she did because she wanted others to see the way life was in the 1800’s. She was influenced by her mother, Caroline and daughter Rose. Laura knew how important and interesting it was when her mother passed down stories and passed times to her. So Laura then wanted to do the same; she began to tell others through writing, what happened and what she had went through any years ago. She is now known as a famous American author and has created a whole new world in literature that nobody would have dreamed of on their own. Laura Elizabeth Ingalls was the second child of Caroline and Charles Ingalls. She was born on February 7, 1867. Laura had an older sister Mary who was only two when she was born, after Laura there was Carrie, Charles, and Grace. Charles passed away as an infant leaving only the girls. During this time there were no hospitals to give birth in so Laura was born in a small log cabin near Pepin, Wisconsin. During the mid-to-late 1800’s many changes were occurring.

Population rates were on the rise, and had nearly doubled by this time.

Vertigo and Laura

...Both Vertigo and Laura raise the idea of masculinity, and it's place and role in society and character. The relationships in both films, particularly those between the male protagonists and women, highlight the differing ideas of masculinity. The character of Scottie in Vertigo highlights how relationship with women can greatly effect the idea of masculinity, whereas this is reversed in Laura, when the title character Laura shows how she greatly changes the concept of masculinity through three differing male characters. The relationship between detective John, or Scottie, Ferguson and his friend Midge Wood is one of the more interesting looks at male and female identities in the film. Robin Wood points out that the scenes in which both Scottie and Midge are both present place a strong emphasis in their communication difficulties. (Wood, 1989) Midge seems to treat Scottie more as a mother than as a friend. Whether this is in an attempt to ease the pressure off Scottie with his vertigo, she constantly talks down to him. This is highlighted when Midge attempts to explain her bra to him, telling Scottie that "You know about these things. You're a big boy now." Scottie recognises this relationship, going as far as to tell Midge "Don't be so motherly." (Modleski, 1988) Another scene in which these two appear is when John attempts to overcome his vertigo by climbing a stepladder. This scene also highlights the mother-son relationship these two seem to have, as Midge warns......

Laura Secord

...McWilliams CLN4U Laura Secord An idol is a woman of memorable heroism or power, respected for her bravery and honorable qualities; Laura Secord clearly qualifies and exceeds this description. Her initiative, intelligence and physical strength have been inspiring people since her story became widely known and the affects her actions had on the war of 1812. Laura Ingersoll Secord deserves a place of honor in Canadian history because of her remarkable courage, fearlessness and gallant act which made an important impact on the outcome of the battle at Beaver Dams. Laura Ingersoll was born on September 13th 1775 in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Laura never recognized the true meaning of a lighthearted childhood. At the age of eight her biological mother, Elizabeth Dewey, passed away leaving her to look after her three younger sisters. This was difficult seeing as her father, Thomas Ingersoll, was an American Officer and constantly beckoned for duty. Her father married twice and had numerous children for which Laura helped care for. In 1795 her father grew to dislike the American government and decided to move the entire family to Upper Canada. When Laura was eighteen the family moved to Bustling Port which was near the Niagara River. After Laura relocated she met a young man named James Secord who she eventually married in 1797 under the Church of England. They were a very wealthy family. By 1812, the Secord’s had five children and moved to Queenston. Laura did not......

Laura Ashley

...CTAC02 4/13/07 17:20 Page 10 Laura Ashley Holdings plc: The Battle for Survival On February 1, 1999 Ng Kwan Cheong took over as chief executive of Laura Ashley Holdings. Cheong was the company’s seventh CEO since the death of Laura Ashley in 1985. Indeed, the longevity of Laura Ashley CEOs was shortening. John James was CEO from 1976 to 1990, Jim Maxmin from 1991 to 1993, A. Schouten from 1993 to 1995, Ann Iverson from 1995 to 1997, David Hoare from 1997 to 1998, while Cheong’s immediate predecessor, Victoria Egan, had held the job a mere 5 months. Top management turmoil coincided with a downward spiral for the company. In the financial year ended January 31, 1999, sales were down 17% on the previous year, and the bottom line showed a net loss of £33 million. Ng Kwan Cheong was one of the senior management team of MUI Asia Group – a diversified Malaysian corporation that acquired 40% of Laura Ashley’s equity in May 1998. He had been chief executive of MUI’s retailing arm, Metrojaya Berhad, as well as holding board positions with several other Malaysian companies. However, despite considerable senior management experience as well as familiarity with the UK (Cheong was a graduate of Middlesex University), little in his prior career could have prepared him for the situation at Laura Ashley. Despite a succession of restructurings and strategy redirections since 1990, the company continued to bleed cash – cash outflow from operations was £11.4 million during......

Laura was the second of five children in her family. As a little girl, Laura and her family moved around a lot.
