I have now completed adding notations from the parts of Lewis' diary that were not published. They all appear in The Lewis Papers and are accessible, but not widely so, since The Lewis Papers have not been published. There are several days
in January 1923 (the 25th being one of them) with a lot more on
Jack. In addition, I have much more on the following dates (and probably more
dates than this): August 1-6, 1923; March 31, 1924; Feb. 13, 1925; Feb. 28,
1925; July 9, 1926. I am also beginning to put the source of articles and poems
in footnotes, i.e., identifying where one can find that article or poem.
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.
This file describes what is happening in Oxford, Cambridge, the UK, and Europe at the time that Lewis writes his various poems, essays, and books, dividing the life and writings of Lewis by academic topic, i.e. English, Philosophy, History, etc.
