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notes on T. S. Eliot (from Janice Brown's book), some footnotes on “Fellow Knight,” a couple of additions from Warren's unpublished diary, some minor details, and some information on Cyril Clemens.

Lenten Lands

Posted by Joel Heck on Thursday, October 14, 2010
In this new posting, I have done two things. First, I have reread Douglas Gresham's book, Lenten Lands, the story of his life with Joy Davidman and C. S. Lewis. I have taken all chronological references and incorporated them into my database. There were not many additions, but see especially the interesting account on Guy Fawkes' Day, Nov. 5, 1959. The more complete account, of course, is in Lenten Lands. There were a few other items besides this event, so the database continues to grow.

The second thing I did was to reread the diary of J.O. Reed. I made one major correction and fleshed out a few of the other items that came from Reed, one of Lewis' undergraduate students between 1949 and 1952. Coming next will be a read of Lyle Dorsett's book, A Love Observed, with the adding of chronological details from that book into the database. So come back in a few weeks. As always, if you find a mistake or an omission, please send it to me. Thanks very much.

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."
