New Item, thanks to Colin Duriez

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, February 6, 2010
Just today, as I read Colin Duriez's Tolkien and C. S. Lewis: The Gift of Friendship, I discovered another chronological and historical piece of information about Lewis, coming from 1938, a year in which I have relatively little information. Read page 86 ot the Duriez book to see what I discovered. This is the type of thing that I am hoping other Lewis scholars, or casual readers, will send me. I think I have most or all of the data from the major sources--diaries and collections of letters by Jack and Warren Lewis. But there will be other places, such as the Duriez book, the diary of a student of Lewis, notes from Charles Williams or Owen Barrfield, where other specific events are recorded and not yet added to this database. Please send them to me. The more complete this resource, the more useful it becomes. I have already learned from this database, for example, something I never would have guessed. Warren Lewis was among those rescued from Dunkirk during World War Two during the so-called "Miracle at Dunkirk." Send me some material if you find it. Thanks. (2-6-2010)

This is the latest Lewis chronology:

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."
