Finally a scholarly article published

For all the people following this blog .... oh wait, no one is following this blog.
Oh well, in case someone in the future reads this blog, I finally had an article published in a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal, albeit a modest one. The article is pulled out of my study Evidence of Influences. It is the section that examines where in the Toole papers Boethius appears (pages 7 through 9). That was the most important part of Evidence of Influences, because it refuted a claim made earlier in the scholarly literature.

The article is: Leighton, H. Vernon. "A Refutation of Robert Byrne: John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces, Chaucer, and Boethius." Notes on Contemporary Literature 42.1 (January 2012): 11-12.
