McGrath, C. S. Lewis, A Life

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, February 19, 2013
This latest posting completes the additions to this chronology, based on Alister McGrath's recent biography of Lewis (to be released on March 1). It includes McGrath's redating of Lewis's conversion to theism and also to Christianity, but it has many other additional new pieces of information. It also adds additional information about the content of Lewis's letters in the early 1940s, as I continue that project of adding such information to this chronology. My review of McGrath's book will appear on the home page of this website in the next couple of days, once I complete my writing of it. The review is almost complete. You will find the review favorable, and McGrath's biography strongly recommended. In fact, the book is stunning. Seldom has so much new light been shed on Lewis in the past several decades. I have little doubt that it will become the standard biography of Lewis in a rather short period of time.

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.
