Sister Penelope

Posted by Joel Heck on Sunday, August 4, 2019

I added the following to this version: On March 8, 1951, Lewis wrote to John Philip Collins about a talk he would be giving to the Kipling Society. I added a bit more information about his stay at Sister Penelope's Convent in Wantage in April 1942. The poem, “Apologist’s Evening Hymn,” is included in a letter to Sister Penelope on July 29, 1942, because Lewis states in his letter, “I’ve just completed” the poem, perhaps even on this day. I also added a footnote to give a source for Jack’s letter to Sister Penelope on December 22, 1942.

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 July 11, 2019, 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" and some undated poems with estimated dates based on handwriting analysis.
