Phillpotts, Eden: Lying Prophets. V1. 4 June 2012

Lying Prophets
by Eden Phillpotts (1897)

Eden Phillpotts (4 November 1862 29 December 1960) was an English author, poet and dramatist. He was born in India, educated in Plymouth, Devon, and worked as an insurance officer for 10 years before studying for the stage and eventually becoming a writer. - Wikipedia

Synopsis:
This work, which might be called a companion volume to "Children of the Mist," is a powerful study of contemporary life, religion and art. In its profound analysis of human character, in growth, development and decay, and in its sympathetic delineation of the simpler lives of an ignorant peasantry, it strongly suggests George Eliot's "Adam Bede."

Lying Prophets deals with the fisher folk on the coast of Cornwall and introduces as its dramatis personae the artists' colony at St Ives.
