In 17th-century England, there was a significant rise in prose fiction, particularly romance novels. Elizabethan author Emanuel Ford was one of the major contributors to this movement with books such as ‘Ornatus and Artesia’ and ‘Montelion’.

 

‘The Famous history of Montelion, Knight of the Oracle’, was a popular chivalric novel that met all the expected adventure details of the time – shipwrecks, slavery, oracles and fortune, and pastoral settings. Ford used these literary devices as a mask for his attempts at political and religious satire providing parallels to the life and death of Oliver Cromwell.
