The post on March 2, 2019, is only 132 words longer than the previous one with most minor additions of additional information of items that are already there. It probably includes insights from Norbert Feinendegen on the chronology of Lewis' conversion. 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notes on T. S. Eliot (from Janice Brown's book), some footnotes on “Fellow Knight,” a couple of additions from Warren's unpublished diary, some minor details, and some information on Cyril Clemens.

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 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."
