Description: 

Courthouse Square is the physical, political and social center of Yoknapatawpha. It appears frequently in Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha fictions. In this project we use the Square as the location for places in Jefferson that cannot be more specifically located; in this story, then, it provides the location from which Charles Mallison is narrating the story. In addition, we identify it as the place "about town" where Monk is often seen in his "cheap, bright town clothes" (46). The Courthouse itself, where Monk's jury trial takes place, sits in the center of the Square.
