You should cite every direct quote with a parenthetical citation that includes Canticle, Canto and line number. For example, a citation for this quote from would look like this: “Rejoice, Florence, since you are so great/ that on sea and land you beat your wings, and your name/ spreads through Hell!” (Inf. 26.1-3) Note that parenthetical citations go at the end of the sentence that contains the direct quotation.
Rejoice, Florence, since you are so great
that on sea and land you beat your wings, and your name
spreads through Hell!
Among the thieves I found five such citizens of
yours that I feel shame, and you do not rise to
honor them. (Inf. 26.1-7)
Since these are short essays, please use block quotes sparingly! You do not need to type out/reproduce the passage you have selected in the body of your essays.
