Follow the link below to the COM Library literature databases, then select a database to search.  Ebsco: Academic Search Complete and Gale: Literature Resources are typically good places to start.

In Ebsco, try starting with a search for flannery o'connor AND revelation.  From there you can modify the search with the options on the left.  You also can retrieve all articles that have had the story assigned as a subject by searching for PS "REVELATION (Short story)".

In Gale, select Works Search, enter the title of the story, and then select the result with O'Connor's name.

The other Gale resources (GVRL, Scribner's, Twayne's) each have some resources as well.  Some may be longer entries that are about O'Connor's general works.  In these, you can press ctrl+F and search for revelation to quickly locate places in the article where the story is discussed.

There are also several books available at COM Library about O'Connor, and some discuss the story.  Follow the link below to WorldCat and search for su:O'Connor, Flannery.  You also could limit your search to eBooks through the link to our database below.  In the eBook database, search for "flannery o'connor" revelation.  You can then open an eBook's full text and search for revelation through the option on the top right of the screen, which will show all instances in the book where the word appears.
