This article identifies the ideological subtexts that pushed Yvette Guilbert to create supposedly new repertoire that was dedicated to the celebration of the chanson populaire and the chanson ancienne. It looks at how Guilbert defined her conception of the “canon” of the chanson through its process of historicization, and examines Guilbert's career up to 1914. This article also studies her early pedagogical career, in light of the other modern pedagogical experiences that were developed in France.

Keywords: Yvette Guilbert; ideological subtexts; chanson populaire; chanson ancienne; canon; early pedagogical career
