This chronology is about 3,000 words longer than the previous one. It contains especially information about letters written by Jack during the first years of his life, through 1914, from Collected Letters, Vol. I. As usual, I found a couple of letters and a couple of incidents I had previously missed. Included in this version also are some notes from The Lewis Papers, an unpublished set of papers, letters, diaries, etc. that Warren Lewis put together.
This is the latest Lewis chronology:
I have decided to include belowall 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.
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.
