James Como and Don W. King

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, February 24, 2015
This update is now 810 pages long, more than 3,000 words longer than the previous version of a month ago, containing 2,275 footnotes, and featuring insights from two major resources. First, I reread James Como's C. S. Lewis at the Breakfast Table with an eye on things I might have missed for the chronology. The chapter by Derek Brewer provided the most information, and the chapter by Walter Hooper provided a good deal more (even though nearly everything from Hooper was already incorporated). Second, Don W. King's new critical edition of Lewis's poetry, The Collected Poems of C. S. Lewis, resulted in a great deal more information being added. I have also corrected a few minor typographical errors, wondering how they crept in.

My statistical goal: a half million words and a thousand pages of information about the Lewis brothers. The former statistical goal will be reached first, since I'm more than 90% of the way to that goal but only about 80% of the way to the second goal.

My true goal (already met): to provide the most accurate and useful historical information of this type about the Lewis brothers for both the scholar and the casual reader of either brother's books.

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 472 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."
