If I can find a copy of that article, I'll do whatever I can to make it accessible to you. Someone on Wikipedia linked to it. They have delineated all three books in enormous (possibly too much) detail -- read it now, before it gets deleted:

Carrie Hintz' essay which is talked about in that article, is called "Joy But Not Peace" and it is in Utopian and Dystopian Writing for Children & Young Adults. Parts of it are readable in Amazon.com preview.

She compares the trilogy explicitly and in detail to LeGuin's "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas". I had read that in New Dimensions 3, about two years before the first Green-sky book appeared, and always felt that these stories were connected but could never articulate what I was seeing.
