1933-1934

Posted by Joel Heck on Thursday, November 21, 2013
This update is about 1,400 words longer than the last one, containing more information (most of it quite minor) about December 1933 and January 1934. I have also made a couple of slight corrections, one of them about events surrounding the purchase of Phantastes in 1916. The information for 1933 and 1934 comes from Warren Lewis's diaries, and the Phantastes correction comes by way of Devin Brown's new biography of Lewis, A Life Observed, who uses references in various places, including the introduction to the anthology of George MacDonald quotations that Jack put together. I enjoyed reading about Jack and Warren being invited to the Holy Trinity Vicarage for tea in January 1934 with Rev. & Mrs. Thomas.

This is the latest Lewis chronology:

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 472 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."

The file below lists all of the works of C. S. Lewis, including individual poems, dated as precisely as possible either to the date of writing or the date of publication. This version, about 600 words longer than the previous version, includes insights from Charlie Starr's dating based on Lewis' handwriting.
