Quotations. I hadn’t realised that they were so numerous as you apparently found them.”

–– C. S. Lewis on The Pilgrim’s Regress in a letter to Arthur Greeves, 17 December 1932

 

An index to public names

in C. S. Lewis, Surprised by Joy

 

 

“Public names” in C. S. Lewis’s autobiography Surprised by Joy (1955) are all names which are assumed to have any degree of public currency of their own. “Names” include titles of published writings and works of musical or pictorial art. These titles are linked to their authors except, of course, in the case of anonymous works.

 

Several names, while given in full here, are in fact “hidden” in Lewis’s book. This means that they may not be actually found in one or more of the places referred to. For example, two of the three references to Keats’s Endymion refer to lines from that poem quoted without mention either of Keats or of Endymion.

 

References in bold type indicate items on which some further details are given on my web page Quotations and Allusions in Surprised by Joy. Many of these bold-type figures refer to “hidden” locations.

 

The present list gives two types of reference, separated by a slash (/): first the page number in the book’s first edition (Geoffrey Bles, London 1955); then a combination of chapter and paragraph number. For example, the reference “140 / IX.23” for Apuleius means that this name (or some Apuleius-related word or phrase) can be found in chapter IX, paragraph 23, which is page 140 in the first edition. Abbreviations: Pr = Preface, Ep = Epigraph. If you prefer a list with page numbers only, click here; if you prefer chapter-and-paragraph numbers only, click here. Corrections and additions are welcome.
