Through 1922

Posted by Joel Heck on Thursday, May 30, 2013
This post includes the next one hundred pages, proofread and updated, for the Lewis chronology through page 600 of Collected Letters, Volume I. It improves the chronology up through 1922, leaving 1923-1930 yet to do in order to complete all three volumes of Collected Letters. As usual, I have found a letter or two that I missed, added some details, etc. I have noted a chronological problem during July 1921, when Jack took a week with his father and Uncle Augustus and Aunt Anne Hamilton via automobile through much of southern England. This may be cleared up by The Lewis Papers this summer, when I am at the Wade Center. It is not a crucial part of Lewis's life, but I want the chronology to be as accurate as possible. Who knows what things will be uncovered as the chronology becomes more and more complete, what connections, what insights, what previously unknown details that will emerge? My goal, beyond the three volumes of Collected Letters, is, of course, an accurate history of the lives of the Lewis brothers in every possible detail. A short-term goal for now is to reach 500 pages and 300,000 words. That will be a kind of milestone. Both goals are within reach, but the latter one will be reached sooner.

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.
