Do I just put the person's name after the quote when I'm citing a specific person?

  1. It depends, but If you are quoting or paraphrasing, I believe you can say "blahblahblah(Frankenstein)." remember to put the period after the citation, no matter how you do it, with a title or name.

  2. Molly is mostly correct. The period belongs after the closing parenthesis, but the closing quotation marks belong at the end of the quotation, before the parentheses.
