My question is if I were to cite a specific portion of a poem from one line (see bottom for the poem), like for example in my essay if I wanted to say -the unwelcome bed - would I put quotations on it and a citation or should I just leave it because I want to talk about the symbolism the unwelcome bed has and not the rest of the line.
Also when citing a main character from a book do I put sling quotations around it i.e. 'Alice'?
Come, hearken then, ere voice of dread,
With bitter tidings laden,
Shall summon to unwelcome bed
A melancholy maiden!
We are but older children, dear,
Who fret to find our bedtime near.
Yes, you need to put quotations around those words, and you need to cite the quotation.
