1,000 Pages!

Posted by Joel Heck on Sunday, January 3, 2016,
Happy New Year! With this post I have reached the last of my numerical goals. The chronology now has more than one hundred sources, more than a half million words, and more than a thousand pages (not to mention more than 3,000 footnotes, but that was never a goal). The thousand pages have been a long established goal, far less valuable than the actual content, but still symbolic of a minimum of value. This version of the chronology also adds a good deal more from Warren's diaries in the year ...

A Severe Mercy

Posted by Joel Heck on Wednesday, October 10, 2012,
I just finished rereading Sheldon Vanauken's masterpiece, A Severe Mercy, for the fourth time and adding notes from that reading. Surprisingly, I was able to add more than a thousand words to this chronology, especially by calculating the approximate dates when Vanauken wrote to Lewis. I also added the main subjects of the letters they wrote to each other, which, I think, needs eventually to be done for all letters in this document. It enables the chronology to make more sense, sound more hum...

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...

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:

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."
