900 Pages

Posted by Joel Heck on Sunday, November 15, 2015
The proofreading is nearly at an end. This file takes the proofreading through 900 pages. There are about 900 more words, mostly explanatory comments about speakers at the Socratic Club or people to whom C. S. Lewis wrote. I have corrected a couple more spelling mistakes and found a couple of other errors. For example, I had previously listed the end of Lewis's service on the Council of Westcott House as both December 1, 1958 and December 1, 1959. Don't ask me why. Only the latter is accurate, so I deleted the former. Occasionally I improved the writing for the sake of clarity or for researchers. The best example of this is June Flewett, who was also know as Jill. After she married she was June Freud. So I have put her other first name in parentheses in each case, so people can search for Jill and find all references. Unfortunately, June is mentioned hundreds of time as the name of a month, so it would be nearly fruitless to search for June. After her marriage to Clement Freud, I have put the name Flewett in parentheses in each instance of her married name. But before her marriage, I only list Flewett. By the way, Jill Flewett was the most well known of the evacuated children who left London during the Nazi bombing of World War Two to stay at the Kilns. She returned to the Kilns many times and kept in touch with the family. I wouldn't be surprised if Jill Pole (The Silver Chair) were modeled after her to some extent. (I also noticed that I once uploaded a file on Nov. 14, 2014, exactly one year earlier. Just to compare, that file was 798 pages in length and 446,381 words.)

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 May 13, 2020, includes a corrected date for "Transposition" on June 9, 1946.

This file describes what is happening in Oxford, Cambridge, the UK, and Europe at the time that Lewis writes his various poems, essays, and books, dividing the life and writings of Lewis by academic topic, i.e. English, Philosophy, History, etc.
