English MLA Format

posted by .

I writing an essay on Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. When I use a quote, to put the page number at the end can I just do (37)or do I have to put (Stevenson 37). I have found it both ways on the internet and I don't have my MLA book at home. Thanks

  • English MLA Format -

    You can put just the page number in parentheses at the end if one or both of the following are true:

    1. ... if you have named Stevenson (or whoever the author is) in that sentence.
    (Broken Link Removed)
    See the first example right under In-text Citation.

    2. ... if the citation immediately before the one you want to put only the page number for had the same author.
