Citations

Make sure you cite your sources in MLA style. See the Purdue OWL MLA Formatting and Style Guide for full details. Add a works cited with full citations at the end of your post and in-text citations where you are citing in your essay. Example:

Romantic poetry is characterized by the “spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings” (Wordsworth 263).

My bold for emphasis. For in-text citations you only need to include the last name of the author and page number if you have it (Wordsworth 263). If it is an online source, you might not have pages, so then only include the last name of the author (Wordsworth). You have to cite direct quotations, facts, and ideas. Even if you paraphrase a source, you need to cite the idea!

Here is a sample works cited page you can look at for reference.
