Analysis Of Strawberry Wine By Deana Carter

858 words - 3 pages

What is the meaning of passion? Passion can be described in many different ways. According to Webster's Dictionary, passion is defined as any powerful or compelling emotion, feeling, or strong sexual desire. Deana Carter produced a song in 1995 called "Strawberry Wine". She is refers to her occurrence with passion. In the song, she describes it as being like strawberry wine. She begins by explaining how the love developed, with whom, and finishes with the ending that most all of us have, the sentiment of remembrance and recollection. Stanza one, line one, tells us that the story is set in the south, because he is working on a farm. It also mentions the banks of a river and a well-beaten path, which tells me that it was without a doubt in the country. I would say that it is set in modern day time because the young man is a college student. There are three points that would lead us to believe that it was set in the summertime.

The narrator is a young woman around the age of seventeen, according to the chorus of the song. Stanza 1, line three, signifies that she feels as though she is caught somewhere between a woman and a child. It is almost as if she still feels like a child. Yet on the other hand, she is having these feelings of passion that she knows only a woman should be feeling. In the beginning, the narrator could be described as curious, vulnerable, and inquisitive. I feel that it would be safe to say that she has probably been sheltered considering that she lived on a farm with her grandpa. Most young girls who live out on a farm would not usually have the option of hanging out in town with their friends. The young man is a college student, obviously older than she is, and full of knowledge, according to the first stanza. In the end, she seems as though she is feeling much older and sad remembering back. The young man is working on her grandpa's farm as a farm hand so he must be a hard worker. I would say that he is probably more sexually and mentally advanced than she is just from knowing that he...
