“The Prophets” by Robert Jones, Jr. tells the stories of the slaves and their master on a Mississippi plantation, the conflict of beliefs, how men of both races use women, and of the love between slaves Isaiah and Samuel. I don’t understand the title. Nor do I get the somewhat omnipotent others who are voiced throughout the novel. All-in-all I found it to be an interesting story. Note: it contains the violence and language of the period.
