Additions to 1941

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, March 9, 2010
As I have been working on an article about the publications of Lewis in 1941, I have noticed a few corrections and additions that are needed. Consequently, the changes in this March 9 version of "Chronologically Lewis" apply almost exclusively to the year 1941. William Griffin's book Clive Staples Lewis: A Dramatic Life offers a year by year description of much that was going on in Lewis's life, based especially on Lewis's correspondence. One thing I am especially conscious of is the need to provide documentation. When I started this project, I did not anticipate publication in any form, so I did not document everything. In one sense, that is good, because a footnote for each entry would be overkill. P.S. Most of the entries find their source either in one of the volumes of Collected Letters, in Lewis's diary from 1922 to 1927, or in Warren Lewis's published diary, Brothers & Friends.

I have decided to include below almostall of the Spotlights that I have posted thus far, since they are often important, but little known, events in the life of C. S. Lewis. That file appears below, in case some readers have missed some of the previous postings. There are seven postings in that file, and I invite people to submit a candidate for the next posting.

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 528 in number) 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 May 13, 2020, includes a corrected date for "Transposition" on June 9, 1946.
