If your works-cited list includes two or more works by the same author, you must include the title (or part of the title) in the parenthetical reference. If the author’s name is given in the text, only the title and page number(s) are necessary. [6.4.6] Ex: (Dickens, Oliver Twist 30) and (Dickens, David Copperfield 47).

If your works-cited list has two authors with the same last name, include their first initials. Write out full first names if initials are identical. [6.2] Ex: (C. Bronte 20) and (E. Bronte 99-100) What happens when the work you are citing references another work? If you are quoting or paraphrasing a quotation from a secondhand (or indirect) source, put the abbreviation qtd. in (“quoted in”) before the indirect source you cite in your parenthetical reference. The corresponding works cited entry is for the actual source you used. [6.4.7] Ex: In an interview with Cynthia Grenier, Faulkner refers to himself as a “failed poet” (qtd. in Brooks 55).

From: Brooks, Cleanth. William Faulkner: Toward Yoknapatawpha and Beyond. New Haven: Yale UP, 1978.

When a quotation runs to more than four typed lines, set it off from the text by beginning the quotation on a new line and by indenting the entire quotation one inch (or ten spaces) from the left margin.

The quotation should be double-spaced. Do not add quotation marks. Place the parenthetical reference after the period of the last sentence of the quotation; leave a space between the period and the parenthetical reference. [3.7.2] When eliminating words in a direct quote, use an ellipsis [... ]. An ellipsis that completes a sentence should contain four periods [....]. [3.7.5] When citing a play, use act, scene & line numbers—in that order and separated by periods—rather than page numbers. [6.4.8] Ex: (Ham. 5.4.27-32) for Hamlet, Act 5, Scene 4, Lines 27-32 You may abbreviate the titles of literary and religious works. It is usually best to introduce an abbreviation in parentheses immediately after the first use of the full title in the text. [7.7] Ex: " In All's Well That Ends Well (AWW), Shakespeare...."

For abbreviations commonly used, see Bible—7.7.1, Shakespeare—7.7.2, Chaucer—7.7.3, and other literary works—7.7.4.
