400 Pages

Posted by Joel Heck on Monday, August 26, 2013,
With this update, I have proofread 400 pages of the chronology. This has resulted in adding a number of presumed Inklings meetings, many of them unsubstantiated, up to the time that the last Thursday evening meeting of the Inklings took place. I have also corrected some spelling mistakes and a couple of minor errors. The chronology now passes the 318,000-word mark and reaches 532 pages. As always, send me corrections or inquiries, if you see some discrepancy. Tell your friends, if they want t...

Major Improvements

Posted by Joel Heck on Wednesday, August 21, 2013,
This update consists of major editing and additions to the tune of more than 15,000 words, especially for readability. I have checked on author names (occasionally adding a first name), family names, book titles (giving the full title instead of an abbreviated one, or adding an explanatory footnote), geographical locations, typographical errors, italics, complete sentences, and minor content errors. I have added 11:30 a.m. as the normal meeting time for the Inklings on Tuesday mornings at the...

This update is nearly 10,000 words longer than the previous one, and it completes the additions that come from reading more of the diaries of Warren Lewis from 1947-1949. The major change includes several trips to Malvern, where Jack and Warren (sometimes only Warren) visited George and Moira Sayer. George Sayer taught at Malvern College, one of the schools that both Warren and Jack attended. Occasionally, they were able to get away from the Kilns (and from Mrs. Moore!) by spending a weekend ...

Warren Lewis' Diaries

Posted by Joel Heck on Thursday, August 1, 2013,
This new posting crosses two thresholds. It is more than 500 pages long and more than 300,000 words in length. It contains most of the work I gleaned from Warren Lewis' diaries from the years 1947 and 1948, more of which I read this summer at the Wade Center. While a lot of it has to do with trips to Ireland and Malvern that Warren took, there are many times when both Warren and Jack are together. Occasionally they do a brief walking tour. On one of Warren's trips to Ireland, he became ill an...

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.
