The NCTE's English Journal has published Mr. Gilbert's article, "The Quest of Father and Son: Illuminating Character Identity, Motivation, and Conflict in Cormac McCarthy's The Road," in its September 2012 issue.
A second article, written by Gilbert in Beverly Moss's BLSE course Literacy, Race, and Class has been published in the March 2013 edition of the same journal.
