The danger experienced by the translator is hastily displaced onto the integrity of the texts. Dobson uneasily reins in her anxieties about the threats posed by the texts and substitutes them with the conventional appeal to what may be called, in light of her subject, the chivalry of her readers, when she begs their indulgence for the inevitable weaknesses her gender will impart to the translation. 25 In the end, chivalry is a condition of, as well as the basis for, her translation. When she publishes her translation of de Saint-Pelaie's (now de Saint-Palaye) Memoirs of Ancient Chivalry five years later, Dobson maintains a stronger grip on her text, and her own relation to her source material.
The 1790s will make extensive use of chivalric imagery; it will have a great need for its tropes. Much of what it understood about the romance it inherited from Hurd, Reeve, et al. The actual details of troubadours and chivalry, however, were supplied by Susannah Dobson in two thick volumes, The Literary History of the Troubadours (1779) and Memoirs of Ancient Chivalry (1784), both translated from the French of M. de Saint-Pelaie (or Palaye), but extensively annotated by Dobson. The two volumes demonstrate the more conflicted, fluid approach to the romance that will characterise the 1790s; Dobson's indecision regarding the overall benefit of chivalry to society finds its analogue in, in Duff's words, the 'fundamentally unstable' 'language of romance and chivalry' (133; Duff's emphasis).
