Gavin Douglas and Chaucer.

Review of English Studies 21, no. 84 (1970): 401-21.

Identifies a number of parallels between Chaucer's works and those of Gavin Douglas, focusing on "Eneados" and demonstrating that "Douglas owes far more to Chaucer than has been generally recognized." Not a "servile imitator," Douglas, "like Henryson, learnt much from Chaucer while preserving his integrity and individuality as a poet." The majority of the echoes derive from TC, LGW, KnT, and Mars.
