Posting on Feb. 14, 2019, is almost 2,000 words longer, more information, including about Charlie W. Starr's article on the writing "On Bolshevism" and "Mythonomy." The post of Jan. 1, 2019, is more than a thousand words longer, which is now my standard for updates. It includes a note from 1928, when Charlie Starr states that Lewis wrote the fragment "Mythonomy." It also contains notes from a seven-day trip that Warren took in June 1938 in his boat, the Bosphorus. Also other minor changes. I have to put these notes here, because the Yola software is not working correctly. The post from Dec. 18, 2018, includes, among other things, some notes on T. S. Eliot (from Janice Brown's book), some footnotes on “Fellow Knight,” a couple of additions from Warren's unpublished diary, some minor details, and some information on Cyril Clemens.

1931; Formatting

Posted by Joel Heck on Sunday, November 9, 2014
This document is now over 445,000 words long, almost 9,000 more than the previous posting. Almost all of that addition is from the year 1931, the year of Jack's conversion to Christianity, and ending with the last day of November. This is largely the result of more information from Warren's diaries, which includes a fair amount about Jack, since Warren was home during much of this time. The new information from 1931 contains a few minor valuable insights, but nothing earth-shaking. Perhaps the bigger issue is a change in formatting to put a bit more white space in the document. Because of the single-spacing the document has read heavily, so I have put a double space between months in most cases, except for those years where there is only one or two entries per month and not all months have entries. I have also started each year with the phrase "The Year 19xx." That makes it a bit easier to search. Also nearly every month has its own heading, "January 1931," "February 1931," etc. for easier searching. Some day this database will have a half-million words and a thousand pages. We are well on the way to those numbers (not that quantity guarantees quality).

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 488 in number, one more than the previous version because of the addition of the brief "Undergraduate Criticism" from 1960) in the location where they were first published or delivered (if spoken) as far as I am able to determine. Corrections are welcome. This version, slightly revised and added on March 18, 2017, includes works listed in the bibliography of Adam Barkman's C. S. Lewis & Philosophy as a Way of Life. It also includes the recently discovered (by Christopher Marsh) "A Christmas Sermon for Pagans."
