The Lewis Papers, 1895-1916

Posted by Joel Heck on Friday, July 10, 2015,
This edition of the chronology has finally met one of my major goals, i.e. a half-million words. The one remaining goal, besides continued expansion and historical accuracy, is one thousand pages. The previous document was 849 pages, and this one is now 905 pages. The previous document had more than 487,000 words, and this one has more than 514,000 words, which is a huge jump of about 5.5% (I will explain that jump below). That last goal of a thousand pages is within reach in the next year. B...

1923-1925

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, March 10, 2015,
This update, about 9,000 words longer than the previous one, includes insights almost entirely about Warren Lewis. While there is a little about Jack, it mostly describes Warren's service in the RASC, especially serving while at Colchester, England. At the same time, knowing the whereabouts of Warren helps us at least to know that the two brothers were not together. And it fills out some of the life of Warren, most of which has been largely unknown (except a few articles, including my article...

Intellectual History

Posted by Joel Heck on Thursday, October 4, 2012,
After having worked through my intellectual history of Oxford and Cambridge during the Lewis years (available on this website), I have added about a thousand words and a lot more good information about C. S. Lewis. Surprisingly, Jack's lecture at Westcott House in Cambridge, "Modern Theology and Biblical Criticism," had not been mentioned in the chronology. Nor had his talk to Bedford College in London on "Shelley, Dryden,and Mr. Eliot." Lots of other items were added to a document now over 4...

Proofreading Done

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, October 2, 2012,
I have now completed proofreading all 399 pages and more than 266,000 words of this 3.02 MB file. This helped me to see other events that should be added, including an additional schedule from Warren during 1966. The use of those schedules can help a person reconstruct in more detail the likely series of events of Jack or Warren. The document is now about 1,500 words longer and a bit more accurate. A couple of chronological mistakes were found and corrected. The number of footnotes now approa...

200 pages proofread

Posted by Joel Heck on Friday, September 28, 2012,
Most of the previous post applies to this post, which marks the finishing of the proofreading of the next one hundred pages, two hundred in total. This project is now halfway done on a document that has more than 226,000 words. For example, a double listing for the death of a Lewis family dog, Mr. Papworth, has been eliminated (not that this is all that important). Other minor corrections have occurred as well, some of them typographical, as the previous post indicates. This is very boring wo...

Proofreading and Updating

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, September 25, 2012,
In a fairly major effort, I have proofread the first one hundred pages of this nearly 400-page document and made lots of small changes and a couple of corrections. I have also added the first ever photo, a picture of the building in Cambridge where Lewis lectured most of the time at 8 Mill Lane during his later Cambridge years. Lots of the changes are spelling corrections, punctuation corrections, changing past tenses to present tenses for consistency, and improvements in phrasing. However, t...

Warren Lewis's Diary

Posted by Joel Heck on Wednesday, August 22, 2012,
This new version of "Chronologically Lewis" now has about 13,000 more words, and about 20 more pages, than the previous version, including new information from a couple of weeks in September 1949 when Warren was on a holiday in Ireland and especially extensive notes from January 1931 and January-August 1933, including two walking tours that Warren took with Jack. The good news is that there is now a lot more information; the bad news is that it is not all that important, since it does not com...

All Years

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, December 22, 2009,
In addition to adding the year 1945, I have uploaded the entire document, "Chronologically Lewis," which shows what Lewis was doing on any given day for which we have data on any part of his life. My main reason for posting this is to advance the study of Lewis. This will happen only if, as you see errors or omissions, you send me information that will enable me to update the document. I will do so and upload an improved version. So the document is a work in progress, and I hope that you will...

Chronologically Lewis

Posted by Joel Heck on Monday, December 21, 2009,
A lot has been written about Lewis, but no one has catalogued all of the things that Lewis wrote and did, day by day, month by month, year by year. That has now been done. This required reading through all of the Collected Letters, Volumes I, II, and III, the diary of C. S. Lewis and that of Warren Lewis, and other books, documents, and resources. These have been compiled into this document entitled "Chronologically Lewis." Now students of Lewis, and scholars of Lewis, can see what Lewis was ...

This is the latest Lewis chronology:

Size : 9175.937 Kb

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."
