    The Modern Language Association (MLA) developed a style for academic writing that has been in use since 1883. It has undergone numerous changes in the years since, but is still used by students to document and cite the sources they reference in their academic papers. The typical resources of books and journals are relatively easy to cite, but other sources, such as artistic works like screenplays and movies, are not so simple. Here''''''''''''''''s how to quote and cite a play in an essay using MLA format.

    Navigating the MLA Handbook can be pretty overwhelming; there are so many rules that regulate the way we can quote and cite poetry in MLA format in our own writing. Improper quoting and citing can even be considered a form of plagiarism. Here is a comprehensive look at the most important things you need to know to make your English teacher happy with how you quote from and cite poetry in your papers.

    Quotations can add interest to an essay or provide a concrete example of a point you want to get across to your reader, which is especially important for papers on literary analysis. Quoting a poem in an essay is not quite as effortless as putting quotation marks around the text. The Modern Language Association style has guidelines on how to quote a poem based on its length, purpose in text and format.

    Incorporate the quote into a sentence within the body of your paragraph if you quote a short section of a poem in your essay. For example, write, “The phrase, ‘I first surmised the Horses’ Heads / Were toward Eternity’ in Emily Dickinson’s poem ‘Because I could not stop for Death’ describes that death leads to an eternal afterlife.”

    When revising your essay, make sure your paper follows MLA style format. This page contains some general guidelines for the physical arrangement of your pages.

    MLA style is one of the most widely spread standards of academic writing that are used in the United States, Canada and some other countries. It is natural that such standards are adopted. When all the works are more or less standardized, it is easier to work with them, create cross-references and so on. It also stands to reason that different groups of science may need different documentary conventions because of the gaps between the disciplines and their usage.

    In MLA format, I don’t understand why everything on the page has to be double spaced; the heading especially. When double spaced the heading itself takes up half of the page. Start a word document and put the margins at 1” then change the paragraph settings to DOUBLE SPACED (even the heading), Times New Roman at 12 font.
