Abstract Jessica Gildersleeve discusses Rosamond Lehmann's short story "When the Waters Came" (1946), focusing on its representation of war, children, and writing. Drawing on psychoanalytic theories of anxiety, Gildersleeve argues that Lehmann's story seeks to displace its own origins, problematically burying the monstrous child of war.
