George Sayer's biography, Jack.

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, August 14, 2010
With this posting, I have reread (for the fourth time) George Sayer's excellent biography of C. S. Lewis, entitled Jack. During the reading, I made notes on events that could supplement the chronological database. I am happy to report that there were many such additions, although only about 300 words in total. All of them are now documented by footnotes. One of the first additions comes from Dec. 25, 1919, that date that Jack stopped receiving army pay. While this is minor, it is still a documented event in his life. Some additional information was gleaned about Sept. 1, 1939, when Jack cut short a tutorial in order to see Warren off to his military duties.

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.
