Scott Fitzgeralds The Great Gastby, Miss Baker tells the narrator, Nick Carraway, that she knows someone from his town: You live in West Egg, she remarked contemptuously. I know somebody there. I dont know a single You must know Gatsby. Gatsby? demanded Daisy. What Gatsby? (Fitzgerald 11). This isshould the first that Fitzgerald develops the possibility of You onlytime do this when it is ABSOLUTELY necessary. Gatsby beingutilize someone than who he claims. Blah, blah Otherwise, breaksother in quotations to include dialogue. For example: analysis, Okonkwo blah. demanded to know who killed this banana tree? and Ekwefi is

the only woman with the courage to speak: nobody killed it. (Achebe, 16). Clarifying your Evidence: MLA Formatting If you add a word or words in a quotation, you should put brackets around the words to indicate that they are not part the original text.inFor Janof Harold Brunvand, an example: essay on urban legends, states, "some individuals [who retell urban legends] make a point of learning every rumor or tale" (Brunvand 78).

For example: individuals make a point of learning every recent rumor or tale . . . and in a short time a lively exchange of details occurs" (Brunvand 78). Blah blah analysis. DO NOT start or end citations with ellipsis. It is unnecessary.
