Among some portions of the English reading public, however, the Governour, as I have already noted, was a great success. This success indicates that the uncertainty giving rise to the Governour was not Elyot’s alone; other readers were like Elyot attempting to deﬁne their claims to elite status. But since this uncertainty implies a general divergence of experience and belief, it follows that not everyone who was uncertain about the meaning of knighthood would address that concern in the same fashion.
Richard Pace’s 1517 On the Beneﬁts of a Liberal Education (De Recreating reading: Elyot’s Boke Named the Governour 33 fructu qui ex doctrina percipitur) famously described the hostility a chivalric nobility might express toward humanism. Pace recounts a conversation at a banquet in which a drunken nobleman, carrying horns on his back as if ready for the hunt even as he ate, declaims wildly against humanist learning: To hell with your stupid studies. Scholars are a bunch of beggars. Even Erasmus is a pauper, and I hear he’s the smartest of them all .
36 Elyot seeks to make the practice of literacy suitably heroic rather than a “hindrance” to gentility, an exercise of power – of “dignity” – rather than a form of service. If the chivalric ideal retained its hold over the nobility, then Elyot’s knighthood, granted for his administrative service, was indeed of uncertain signiﬁcance. In this exchange of pen for sword Elyot justiﬁes his study by comparing it to the deeds of chivalry. The ability that Elyot describes here, with “learnyng and witte [to] assayle vice and errour,” is more than the literacy required to perform clerical tasks.
