  1. Chapter 12 is a difficult chapter to read because of Maya’s rape. What feelings does 8-year-old Maya experience during and after the rape?  
  2. Why does Maya become mute? Why does her mother send her and Bailey back to Stamps? 
  3. Maya describes Stamps as follows: “The barrenness of Stamps was exactly what I wanted, without will or consciousness. […] Into this cocoon I crept” (89). Explain what Stamps represents at that point that St. Louis could not be for her.
