Dorothy L. Sayers

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, July 24, 2012
I have just finished incorporating all of the relevant references to C. S. Lewis from the four volumes of letters from Dorothy L. Sayers. This is a fairly significant update, since nearly 500 words were added to this database. While many of her references are merely comments in letters to others about one or more of the writings of Lewis, there were some letters she wrote to Lewis, either in response to a letter of his or on her own initiative. When these are paired with Lewis' letters, we learn a bit more about their literary friendship. In addition, she seems to have met him once or twice in Oxford. At least that was in their plans. Later this summer I will added another good chunk of information from the diaries of Warren Lewis. Stay tuned.

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 July 11, 2019, 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" and some undated poems with estimated dates based on handwriting analysis.
