Citing in your essay For a direct quote: – Either the author’s last name, editor’s last name, name of corporate author or the title – Author’s last name plus page number if it is a book. – Ted Bundy assured his lawyer that “He never wanted to hurt anyone” (Udo). – Ted Bundy wanted his victims’ families to know he was “very, very sorry” (“Ted Bundy”).
If you are not using a direct quote but are using information from a source… Same citations as the direct quote, but try to group the information together and merely cite once at the end of it. A general rule of thumb is to cite at least once at the end of every paragraph. This information is from anything you got from another source, unless it is common knowledge or your own personal opinion.
Looks like this. Standing out on the dock by the royal kingdom, there is a guard protecting the queen's magnificent castle, filled with riches. He constantly scans the horizon for any signs of mischief. However, he does not think anything of that small upside down canoe drifting in the water. Little does he know, underneath the canoe hides Captain Jack Sparrow; the Caribbean’s most infamous pirate. He creeps by and stealthily sneaks into the castle. Filling his pockets with riches, Jack is spotted by a royal maid, who shouts to get the attention of the guards. Jack is not the slightest bit worried. (Fischer). All before the maid could even turn back around, Jack has climbed onto a gold finished armoire, jumped up to grab the crystal chandelier, swung back and forth, and launched himself out a giant, open window. Once outside, he eludes the eyes of the guard once again, steals a royal ship, and sails away; all before being seen by anyone besides a maid. This devilishly handsome pirate is the best villain of all because he is adventurous and clever. (“Jack Sparrow”) First of all, Captain Sparrow is a very adventurous pirate. To illustrate, Jack went on an adventure all by himself, and his friends had to go find him. In a ship on the crystal clear waters of a Caribbean Sea, the young attractive pirate, Will Turner, was among the crew of pirates in search of their captain: Captain Sparrow. Will and the crew saw land ahead, and they beached their ship to go ashore. After hours of making their way through the humid jungle, in the scorching heat, they reached their destination. Will parted a curtain of thick wines and ahead, in a clearing, he saw Jack Sparrow, sitting on a grand throne in the center of the local tribe's village. On his quest to find adventure, he had been given the honor of being the king of this small tribe. What is more adventurous than that? He sailed out, in search of whatever the journey would throw at him, and ended up marching through thick, tropical jungles, to end up being crowned as the king of a foreign people. Also, he made his way back from Davy Jones's Locker: a feat accomplished by no pirate before him. After all of the wrongs that Jack had committed, he was finally captured and sent to Davy Jones's Locker. Serving as a prison for the worst pirates and only tolerable by none other than Davy Jones himself, this foul place was not anywhere that anyone would want to spend any amount of time, let alone eternity. Sparrow spent very little time there before formulating a plan to escape. He took risks and went out alone, attempting to escape from the nautical hell. He had to travel through the darkest depths of the sea, making his way through the deepest grottos, and he finally arrived back on land. If Jack Sparrow was to be known for anything, he would be remembered as the most adventurous pirate there ever was. (“Pirates of the Caribbean”)
And this… Not only is he adventurous, but Jack Sparrow is a very clever pirate. To begin, He successfully got himself out of a room full of royal, armed guards. After being temporarily captured by the king's army, Jack found himself at brunch with the king, arms and legs tied together, and bound to the chair. Captain Jack assessed the situation and came up with a plan. A moment before the king entered, he grabbed a scone, with arms still bound, and threw it up in the air, getting it stuck on the chandelier. Minutes later the scone fell, creating a moment of distraction for the occupants of the room, and Jack chose that very second to jump up (which he could do since he had been loosening the ropes holding him to the chair) onto the table, where he climbed onto the chandelier and swung over the guards, into the next room. He jumped out the window, with a sharp ledge that tore off the rope on his feet, and he used his arms (still tied together) to zip line down a clothesline going over the busy alley below, and he escaped, without a trace. This perfectly executed escape got him out of a castle, filled with the greatest guards in the land, and through a crowded part of the city; and he came up with that plan in less than a minute. In addition, he once ended up captured and bound to a wooden pole, close to roasting alive over a fire. After a quick second to analyze the odd situation, Jack decided to swing himself until he could bounce the pole out of its foundation, partially freeing himself. Once free, he noticed a bewildered little boy, watching him. To avoid the boy telling of his escape, Jack impaled a piece of fruit, and then spun around quickly to launch the fruit at the little boy, so he would have time to escape. As if this plan was not amazing enough, he then ran at the edge of the cliff and pole-vaulted over a deep, menacing canyon, getting himself to freedom. If that is not clever, I do not know what is. Jack Sparrow was a very clever villain. (Bennett 306) Imagine the Caribbean if pirates such as Captain Jack Sparrow did not exist. The pirates would never have any real fun. Day after day at sea, pirates would spend time doing nothing better than washing the deck or maybe sleeping. When they reached land that they wanted to explore, they would simply get off of their ship and go walking into the unknown territory. Upon finding a town, they may attempt to steal things, which may seem like a cool thing to do, but without people like Captain Jack, they would get caught and go to jail, with no fun, crazy escape routes. Pirates would be lame. But luckily, this is not so. Making his way through life going on fantastic adventures and using his quick wits to get him out of whatever twisted situations he gets into, Jack Sparrow is the best villain ever to walk the land or sail the sea.
