Beowulf Has no known author and title will be mentioned in topic sentence. Therefore, you will only need to put the line number for the quotation in parentheses after the quotation (1022).
Grendel Again, you will mention the author’s name and literary work in the topic sentence, and since you are only quoting from this one source in the paragraph, you do NOT have to be redundant and restate that in each citation. Therefore, all you need in the in-text citation is the page number in parentheses after the quotation (22).
Canterbury Tales Again, the author and title of work are in the topic sentence with NO OTHER sources being used in the paragraph. Therefore, you only need to put the line number in parentheses after the quotation.
Macbeth Same goes for this one– no need to repeat the author with every quotation. But, you will need to put the act, scene, and line numbers for each quote in parentheses ( ).
