The Letters of Charles Williams

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, October 23, 2010
I just finished working through all of the references to C. S. Lewis in the book, To Michal from Serge: Letters from Charles Williams to His Wife, Florence, 1939-1945. I was able to add eighteen notes, more than 400 words in all, all of them footnoted, as a result of working through the well indexed references to C. S. Lewis. That's quite a bit of additional information that is probably not available anywhere else. This is exactly the type of book that I now need to build on the historical chronology of C. S. Lewis which is "Chronologically Lewis." If anyone knows of letters or diaries of anyone in Oxford during the first half of the twentieth century, whether they knew Lewis or not, please let me know. There have to be more books like this one out there.

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.
