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on T. S. Eliot (from Janice Brown's book), some footnotes on “Fellow Knight,” a couple of additions from Warren's unpublished diary, some minor details, and some information on Cyril Clemens.

McGrath, C. S. Lewis, A Life

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, February 19, 2013
This latest posting completes the additions to this chronology, based on Alister McGrath's recent biography of Lewis (to be released on March 1). It includes McGrath's redating of Lewis's conversion to theism and also to Christianity, but it has many other additional new pieces of information. It also adds additional information about the content of Lewis's letters in the early 1940s, as I continue that project of adding such information to this chronology. My review of McGrath's book will appear on the home page of this website in the next couple of days, once I complete my writing of it. The review is almost complete. You will find the review favorable, and McGrath's biography strongly recommended. In fact, the book is stunning. Seldom has so much new light been shed on Lewis in the past several decades. I have little doubt that it will become the standard biography of Lewis in a rather short period of time.

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."
