More on 1934

Posted by Joel Heck on Thursday, January 9, 2014
While 1934 was not a big year for C. S. Lewis, at least not in a literary sense, this posting contains about 28,000 more words than the previous one. This is because the footnotes (about 11,000 words) are now being counted in the total and because more material has been added from the diary of Warren Lewis, much of it about a holiday in Ireland during the month of August. Jack was on that holiday and figures in many of the events. This version contains a lot of information about family dynamics. There are a few other little things. One of those "little things" is the addition of a number in parentheses right after the year at the head of a given year. That number gives the number of days in a 365-day year for which we have information. Not all of the years have been counted (mostly just the early years up to about 1919), but I am adding this feature to give a reader an idea whether or not much valuable information might appear in that year. I'll add the rest in subsequent versions of the chronology.

I have decided to include below almostall of the Spotlights that I have posted thus far, since they are often important, but little known, events in the life of C. S. Lewis. That file appears below, in case some readers have missed some of the previous postings. There are seven postings in that file, and I invite people to submit a candidate for the next posting.

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 May 13, 2020, includes a corrected date for "Transposition" on June 9, 1946.
