This introductory chapter discusses the hierarchies of prestige affecting the reception of Mitchell's music, including distinctions of gender, and between high and low culture. It enumerates contrasting cultural values associated with popular vs. high art forms (such as art song), arguing that Mitchell attempts to bridge the two. It defends the use of technical analysis in the service of critical appreciation of popular music.

Keywords:   prestige, gender, low culture, cultural values, art song
