The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien, completed

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, June 22, 2013,
With this new version of Chronologically Lewis, I upload a document that incorporates all of the information I could glean from Tolkien's letters. While not much longer than what I uploaded when halfway through the letters, it contains three interesting additions and then some. Those additions are a quotation from Feb. 8, 1951, when Lewis met his friends at the Royal Oxford for dinner after having lost the election for the Chair of Poetry to C. D. Lewis. The other two additions surround...

The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, June 15, 2013,

There is actually one step prior to doing more of Warren Lewis's diaries--The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien.

Through May 1930

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, June 1, 2013,
This update takes us through May 1930 and 900 pages of Collected Letters, Vol. I. Since a *.pdf file is able to be searched, a search for terms such as "Scott" (for Sir Walter Scott) should produce the places where Lewis wrote about him in his letters. There are only 77 more pages to reread and the process of rereading all three volumes of Collected Letters, making corrections, and adding summaries of the contents of all of Lewis's letters will be complete.

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."
