English (MLA Citations)

posted by Beowulf

I need to cite Beowulf from The Norton Anthology of English Literature, but I'm not sure how, as the author is unknown. Here's the general format for MLA citations given by my teacher:

Authors. Title of Piece. Title of Book. Edition. Vol. Editors’ Names. Page Numbers. City: Company, Year.

Here's what I think the MLA citation should be:

"Beowulf." The Norton Anthology of English Literature: The Middle Ages. Eighth Ed. Trans. Seamus Heaney. Eds. Alfred David and James Simpson. Series Eds. Stephen Greenblatt and M.H. Abrams. 34-100. New York: Norton and Company, 2006.

Please correct if I did something wrong.
