Still More on Citation
This exercise should not take you longer than about fifteen minutes. Put these five things in MLA works cited form.
- You are working on your book report and feel that you need to cite your book, which is a good thing to do. You are writing about William Faulkner's great novel The Sound and the Fury. The edition that you are using was published in 1987 by the W.W. Norton Company, which is headquartered in New York.
- Over the weekend, for some odd reason, you have developed a powerful interest in structuralist poetics. And sex. You want to incorporate both of these into your paper, so you read and cite Claude Levi-Strauss's article "The Sex of the Heavenly Bodies." The essay is found on pages 160-190 in a book entitled Introduction to Structuralism. It is edited by Michael Lane and is published by Basic Books, which is located in New York. The book came out in 1970.
- And now for something completely different. Exams are quickly approaching and since you have blown-off most of your work all semester long, you realize that, to pass, you'll have to appeal to a higher power. No, not me, but someone of equal magnitude. You want to cite The New American Standard Bible: Study Edition. It is printed in Philadelphia by the A.J. Holman Company. This edition came out in 1976.
- Let's get back to the sex question...you want to cite a good magazine article for your paper on sex and poetics. You choose one of the following: "The P.C. Manual for Sex," by Asa Barber or "Me and the Men's Movement," by Cynthia Heimel. The first one is on page 40 and the second is on page 42. They are both to be found in the November 1991 issue of Playboy magazine, Volume 38, Number 11.
EXTRA CREDIT: Cite a movie of your choice in MLA format.
