Through 1963

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, January 25, 2014
All of Warren Lewis's diaries from Feb. 27, 1932 through July 29, 1966 have now been read and incorporated into this chronology. This most recent version completes the year 1934. The years 1919 through Feb. 26, 1932 remain to do. In addition, I have incorporated the publication dates of several more book reviews of C. S. Lewis, those now available in C. S. Lewis: Image and Imagination, recently published by Cambridge University Press and containing some previously unpublished reviews and articles of Lewis. Thanks to Walter Hooper for editing that book. That book contains some additional information about a lunch with Jack, Warren, Hugo Dyson, and Charles Williams in London at Shirreff's on July 4, 1938. There is also mention of a trip that Jack made to Manchester to deliver a paper on Oct. 30, 1934. What paper he read is not known at this point, but "The Idea of an 'English School'" was written around this time. This updated version contains another eleven pages and 8,000 words of text. A few more years contain the number of entries for that year, with the number of entries placed next to the year in parentheses at the beginning of each year.

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.
