MLA StyleCitation Worksheet
In a word processing programs or on a separate sheet of paper, answer the following questions
Part I: In-Text Citations: Book
Using your Huck Finn book, write examples of the following types of in-text citations:

  1. Direct Quotation (author referenced in the sentence):Through Huck, Twain describes the King and the Duke as “low-down humbugs and frauds” (184).

  2. Direct Quotation (author not referenced in the sentence):Colonel Grangerford is described as having “no fivolishness about him, not a bit” (Twain 159).

  3. Direct Quotation (character referenced, but author not referenced in the sentence):Huck says that “Buck looked as old as me—thirteen or fourteen or along there” (Twain 148).

  4. Paraphrase (author referenced in the sentence):Twain gives us a very graphic description of Pap, showing us Pap's character through the long stringy hair, the unhealthy pallor, and the ragged clothes (27-28).

  5. Paraphrase (author not referenced in the sentence):Pap's character is shown to us through his long stringy hair, unhealthy pallor, and ragged clothes (Twain 27-28), and we can easily see why Huck is ignorant of civilized ways.
  6. Using your Bible, write an example of an in-text citation, where the speaker is referenced in the text:
    Paul says, "First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world" (Romans 1:8 ESV).
