Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

After Monk is arrested, he is unable to identify his supposed victim. As the narrator of "Monk" puts it, "he named as his victim (this on suggestion, prompting) several men who where alive, and even one who was present in the J.P.'s office at the time" (42). His ignorance here provides further proof of Monk's incompetence to participate in his own defense.
