How do you quote multiple stanzas?
Brief Verse QuotationsIf you quote all or part of a single line of verse, put it in quotation marks within your text. You may also incorporate two or three lines in the same way, using a slash with a space on each side [ / ] to separate them. Use two slashes [ // ] to indicate a stanza break in a quotation.
How do you quote a long quote?
Long quotations For quotations that are more than four lines of prose or three lines of verse, place quotations in a free-standing block of text and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new line, with the entire quote indented ½ inch from the left margin while maintaining double-spacing.
Do you put the title of a poem in quotes?
Italics are used for large works, names of vehicles, and movie and television show titles. Quotation marks are reserved for sections of works, like the titles of chapters, magazine articles, poems, and short stories. Let’s look at these rules in detail, so you’ll know how to do this in the future when writing.
