Phantastes

Posted by Joel Heck on Friday, May 10, 2013
This latest version of the chronology is, of course, longer and with more detail than the previous one, taking us through almost half of 1916 (starting from the beginning of his letters). As I reread Volume 1 of Collected Letters, I see a few things I missed and add them. Mostly I add more detail, but occasionally I get an insight. One fascinating (to me at least) such detail is that I have discovered the actual date that Lewis bought Phantastes, March 4, 1916. Others probably already know this, but I didn't. I only had it generally placed in March of 1916, but a letter of Lewis places the date accurately and the place of purchase as a train station bookstall at Great Bookham.

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."
