Ewrt 1 c class 13

  1. 1. + EWRT 1C class 13 SYMPHON
  2. 2. + AGENDA Integrating quotations In text citations The works cited page MLA formatting
  3. 3. + Integrating Quotations
  4. 4. + Quoting Verse  When short (fewer than three lines of verse) quotations from poetry, mark breaks in short quotations of verse with a slash, ( / ), at the end of each line of verse (a space should precede and follow the slash).  Roethke writes, “The whiskey on your breath / Could make a small boy dizzy” (1-2).
  5. 5. + Long Quotations  For quotations that extend to more than four lines of verse or prose, place quotations in a free-standing block of text and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new line, with the entire quote indented one inch (10 spaces) from the left margin; maintain double-spacing. Only indent the first line of the quotation by an additional quarter inch if you are citing multiple paragraphs. Your parenthetical citation should come after the closing punctuation mark. When quoting verse, maintain original line breaks. (You should maintain double- spacing throughout your essay.)
  6. 6. + In his poem "My Papa's Waltz," Theodore Roethke explores his childhood with his father: The whiskey on your breath Could make a small boy dizzy; But I hung on like death: Such waltzing was not easy. We Romped until the pans Slid from the kitchen shelf; My mother's countenance Could not unfrown itself. (quoted in Shrodes, Finestone, Shugrue 202) For example, when citing more than four lines of verse, use the following example: Hanging indent for long quotation: 10 spaces
  7. 7. + According to the St. Martin's Guide, there are three main ways to set up a signaling phrase: 1. With a complete sentence followed by a colon.  The next two lines of the second stanza go like this: "My mother's countenance/ Could not unfrown itself” (7-8). 2. With an incomplete sentence, followed by a comma.  Rather than saying, ”[papa kept] time on my head/with a palm caked hard by dirt” (13-14 ), the narrator uses much more aggressive language. 3. With a statement that ends in that or that flows directly into the quotation.  the narrator says that “[papa] beat time on [his] head" (13).  The first stanza begins with a description of "the whiskey on [Papa's] breath" (1).
  8. 8. + Using Signal Phrases:  One common error a lot of people make when they include a quotation is that they tend to put the quotation in a sentence by itself. Unfortunately, we cannot do this. We need to use what Diana Hacker calls a signal phrase to introduce the quote and give our readers a context for the quote that explains why we are taking the time to include it in our paper. Incorrect: The next two lines of the second stanza explain that his mother is upset. "My mother's countenance/ Could not unfrown itself” (7-8). Correct: The next two lines of the second stanza explain that his mother is upset: "My mother's countenance/ Could not unfrown itself” (7-8). Correct: In order to explain that his mother is upset, the narrator says, "My mother's countenance/ Could not unfrown itself” (7-8).
  9. 9. + MLA Formatting Style https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xAc4yZ8VSA
  10. 10. + MLA format: on our website under “writing support.” MLA (Modern Language Association) style is most commonly used to write papers and cite sources within the liberal arts and humanities. MLA style specifies guidelines for formatting manuscripts and using the English language in writing. MLA style also provides writers with a system for referencing their sources through parenthetical citation in their essays and Works Cited pages. Writers who properly use MLA also build their credibility by demonstrating accountability to their source material. Most importantly, the use of MLA style can protect writers from accusations of plagiarism, which is the purposeful or accidental uncredited use of source material by other writers. http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/

Here are directions for citing a poem accessed on a web site according to MLA standards.  Cite the poem as a page or article on a web site.  You may have to navigate to other pages on the Web site to find citation information ("About Us," About this Site," etc.)  If you cannot find some of the elements of the citation, you may omit the missing elements.  MLA does not require the URL of the Web site to be included in the citation. http://libguides.pstcc.edu/content.php?pid=24540&sid=1751623
