My question is if I were to cite a specific portion of a poem from one line (see bottom for the poem), like for example in my essay if I wanted to say -the unwelcome bed - would I put quotations on it and a citation or should I just leave it because I want to talk about the symbolism the unwelcome bed has and not the rest of the line.

Also when citing a main character from a book do I put sling quotations around it i.e. 'Alice'?



Come, hearken then, ere voice of dread,
With bitter tidings laden,
Shall summon to unwelcome bed
A melancholy maiden!
We are but older children, dear,
Who fret to find our bedtime near.

    About a book's character's name, no quotation marks are used.
