1) How do you usually quote the title of a chapter within a book? Thank you.
Jonathan Swift (author)
Gulliverís Travels (novel: italics + bold?)
Beloved Horses, Hateful Men (title: italics?)
2) Full/complete reading of the abridged edition of Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. (how do you express the fact that students read the abridged edition of Wilde's The Picture..)

1. The title of a book should be either underlined or in italics.
The Picture of Dorian Gray
The Cat Who Could Read Backwards
Titles of articles, poems, chapters in books, and other items that are not published as separate items to hold in your hand are indicated by quotation marks:
"Wondering about Siblings: A Study of Jealousy's Early Onset." (an article in an issue of Atlantic Monthly)
A chapter in a book would follow the pattern of the article in the magazine above.
2. Here's how:
The Picture of Dorian Gray (abridged edition)

Here's a good place for information on citing in MLA format:
(Broken Link Removed)
Hold your cursor over the words CITING SOURCES in the left column and then click on whatever type of source you need help with.
Many examples will show up. You need to pay attention only to how the titles are dealt with in the works cited page (even if you're not writing a works cited page!).
