How do you quote a quote within a quote?

Okay, Finley is quoted for saying "blah blah" in Cantarella's essay but I have to quote everything Cantarella said. How do I do this double quote?

Thanks!

  1. Quotations of more than three lines of verse, or four lines of typed prose, should be set off from the text, indented on left and right margins, and should not be enclosed in quotation marks. End the sentence in your text that comes immediately before the quotation with a colon. Be careful to retain the punctuation of the material you're quoting.

  3. Typically, quotes within quotes are written like this:

    "She said 'you are so fat, Martha' in that really nasty tone to me," my mother gossiped.

    Try something like that. If your Cantarella quote is longer than three or four lines, then follow the rules above for long quotations.

  4. But how do you cite it?

    "She said 'you are so fat, Martha' in that really nasty tone to me," my mother gossiped (Finley, Cantarella).

  6. The fact that they did not have first names suggests that “‘women were not, and ought not be genuine individuals, but only fractions of a family. Anonymous and passive fractions at that…’” (Finely, Cantarella 245).

    'women were not, and ought not be genuine individuals, but only fractions of a family. Anonymous and passive fractions at that…' was said by Finley and quoted in Cantarella's essay and I am writing an essay on Cantarella's essay.

  7. I believe your quotes should be like this...

    "The fact that they did not have first names suggests that 'women were not, and ought not be genuine individuals, but only fractions of a family. Anonymous and passive fractions at that...'" (Finley, Cantarella 245).

    I'm not very familiar with citing. Sorry!

  8. 'The fact that they did not have first names suggests that' should not be in quotes because that is what I said.
