Last Update on Proofreading

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, July 20, 2021

This is the last installment of my lengthy proofreading of the entire chronology. I made a few changes, most of them fairly unimportant. For example, I noted that Kathy Kristy, a child who wrote to Lewis, is the future Mrs. Timothy Keller, I added some historical information from Michael Ward’s 2021 book on The Abolition of Man, I fixed a few typos such as italicizing all references to Warren's boat the Bosphorus, I explained elevenses in every place it is used as coffee usually drunk at 11 a.m., I added some additional information about people, places, and phrases (such as indicating that Teddy Hall is the nickname for St. Edmund Hall), I removed many of the annoying participles at the end of sentences (a feature of my poor writing--some of them remain), and I added an occasional missing word, mostly articles or prepositions. This latest proofreading job is now complete. One other note--I am convinced that many people, especially Lewis scholars, use this chronology without giving credit to the place they found a certain piece of information. That is regrettable. Please give credit so that others can learn about 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.
