Kommentar: The author is Abbé (Antoine François) Prévost (1697-1763). This is an historical novel claiming to the authored by the bastard son of Cromwell, who is not portrayed in a particularly flattering light. It was probably inspired by Prévost’s time in London in the late 1720s. This type of obscuring of the author is typical of the time, and also used by f.ex. Daniel Defoe (Robinson Crusoe was originally also claimed to be written by “Himself”). / Forfatteren er Abbé (Antoine François) Prévost (1697-1763). Dette er en historisk roman som påstår å være skrevet av Oliver Cromwells uekte sønn. Cromwell får ikke den peneste omtalen her. Romanen er antageligvis inspirert av Prévosts tid i London på slutten av 1720-tallet. Å bruke hovedpersonen som «forfatter» er typisk for perioden, og ble også gjort av bl.a. Daniel Defoe (Robinson Crusoe var også først utgitt som skrevet av «Himself»).
