"EDEN PHILLPOTTS (1862-), British novelist, poet and dramatist, was born in India Nov. 4 1862, and was educated at Plymouth. He was a clerk for ten years in the Sun fire insurance office, then studied for the stage, but turned his attention to literature, producing a number of successful novels with a Devonshire setting. They include Some Everyday Folks (1893); Children of the Mist (1898); The Human Boy (1899); Sons of the Morning (1900); My Devon Year (1903); The Mother (1908; dramatized 1913); Orphan Dinah (1920) and a play, St. George and the Dragons (1919). His play, The Secret Woman (dramatized from his novel of that title), was refused a licence but, after a public protest by twenty-four authors, it was performed six times at matinees in 1912 under the management of Mr. Granville Barker. He also published single poems such as The Iscariot (1912), and two collections of poems, Plain Song (1917) and As the Wind Blows (1920).
