Annie Strahan, Olaf Stapledon, J. D. Bernal, and Albert Lewis

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, October 11, 2022
As I was writing about Albert Lewis, I discovered a mistake in my chronology where I was off by two days. The Lewis Papers give us Albert's diary for 1919, and he writes about an argument with Jack over the amount of money Jack had in his bank account. The date of that argument was August 6, 1919, not August 8, so I corrected it. And I now have it footnoted, which was a significant omission in previous versions of this document. In addition, I have added some dates relative to a Little Lea housekeeper by the name of Annie Strahan, some notes about Olaf Stapledon and eugenics, and some notes on J. D. Bernal. I continue to read about Lewis and occasionally run across someone who informs me about another detail in Lewis's life or another influence on him. Those are the updates I have made to this version of "Chronologically Lewis." By the way, if you use "Chronologically Lewis" for your research and writing, please note that in your documentation. I know that all of my data is available elsewhere in primary sources, but honesty compels me to ask you to note the value of this source, which I'm making available to everyone free of charge. Thanks for using this resource.

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.
