Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, February 19, 2013,
This latest posting completes the additions to this chronology, based on Alister McGrath's recent biography of Lewis (to be released on March 1). It includes McGrath's redating of Lewis's conversion to theism and also to Christianity, but it has many other additional new pieces of information.

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.
