English (MLA)

posted by .

In my essay I want to quote a character saying something. And I just want to confirm that this is how I would do this:

"'I married him-and he is a good man'" (Ross 180).

I just want to know if the three quotations are supposed to be there? I cant find in on any MLA help cites...thanks!

  • English (MLA) -

    I think you're right. I'll look it up, and let you know for sure.

  • English (MLA) -

    This is the best, most straightforward explanation I found. It's excellent!

    Since you've cited the author and the author cites his source, you've done what you need to.
