This chapter examines Elizabeth Bowen’s and Virginia Woolf ’s shared use of the cryptographic in their novels bracketing World War II: Woolf’s Between the Acts (1941) and Bowen’s The Heat of the Day (1948). Although Bowen realizes a landscape only intimated by Woolf, both use war as a focalizing point for examining the intersection of history and private experience as embodied in the ages of their female protagonists.

Keywords:   Virginia Woolf, Between the Acts, Elizabeth Bowen , The Heat of the Day, cryptographic
