Posting on Feb. 14, 2019, is almost 2,000 words longer, more information, including about Charlie W. Starr's article on the writing "On Bolshevism" and "Mythonomy." The post of Jan. 1, 2019, is more than a thousand words longer, which is now my standard for updates. It includes a note from 1928, when Charlie Starr states that Lewis wrote the fragment "Mythonomy." It also contains notes from a seven-day trip that Warren took in June 1938 in his boat, the Bosphorus. Also other minor changes. I have to put these notes here, because the Yola software is not working correctly. The post from Dec. 18, 2018, includes, among other things, some notes on T. S. Eliot (from Janice Brown's book), some footnotes on “Fellow Knight,” a couple of additions from Warren's unpublished diary, some minor details, and some information on Cyril Clemens.

Collected Letters, Volume II

Posted by Joel Heck on Friday, March 29, 2013
This updated chronology includes all of the contents of Jack's letters, briefly summarized, from Volume II of Collected Letters. It covers the years 1931 through 1949. As in the previous versions, I have included a couple of letters previously not included (I somehow missed them the first time through) and a few events previously overlooked. A very few corrections to the chronology were made. This version also includes a date for the publication of The Four Loves, which I got from William O'Flaherty, and the date of Jack's conversion to theism, explained by both Alister McGrath and Andrew Lazo. The next step is to work through Volume I of Collected Letters, summarizing the contents of those letters also. That, of course, is the least valuable volume for the life and works of Lewis, but still valuable in itself.

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 488 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."
