166). Chivalry, in Ivanhoe, is a form of male self-love that draws its avatars into aggressively homo-social communities such as the Templar Knights or, in the individual case of Ivanhoe, renders him unable properly to love his family, his home, or (we can guess) his wife, preferring instead the wandering life with his fellow narcissist knights. As Wamba the jester is fond of saying, knightly valour is ever the companion of the fool. Even Ivanhoe舗s fascination with Rebecca can be read as an extension of self-defeating chivalric desire, of his inability to settle down.
Ivanhoe舗s career, we must infer, is not self-sustaining, and the chivalric ethos of beneficence and charity no substitute for responsible government. England舗s condition, as a leaderless state without standard currency or centralized system of credit, is, as Scott puts it, 舠sufficiently miserable舡 (p. 84). While the knights defend their honor and prose on about the purity of their souls, it is the Jews who hold the world of Ivanhoe together. We fear for England at the novel舗s conclusion when Rebecca announces that she and her father are to leave the country.
Rebecca is, of course, a Jew, and is saved at the last, so Scott could not have known in writing Ivanhoe that he was producing the iconography舒the hooded white garb, the Masonic rituals, the burning cross舒for the vilest and most feared racist organization in modern America. But the Klan were poor readers of Ivanhoe. The reason that the inevitable marriage that concludes Scott舗s romance has often seemed less than satisfying to readers is that it takes place outside the erotic space of the novel.
