Not all old language is acceptable to modern audiences
Morals and values change over the centuries and translations need to address these issues. For example, Don Quixote contains racy parts unacceptable to nineteenth-century audiences and racist sections that modern audiences will consider intolerable.

Meet Don quixote.
The chivalry-romance novels were perhaps the superhero comics of their time.
Cervantes seems to have wanted to poke fun at the chivalry-romance novels of his time, by having this person, Don Quixote, reading one too many and thinking he's become a knight on a knight-errant to win the heart of a dame.

To me, the modern-day equivalent of chivalry-romance novels of their time would be someone who read one superhero comic too many, and who then puts on tights and a cape to go out and be a much-admired hero.
