How do I cite this article on enotes: "The Grail Theme in Twentieth-Century literature?" I can't find who wrote it.

I'm trying to quote a piece of this essay in a research paper, and I need to know who the author is in order to cite it without plagiarism.

In MLA citation, when you do not know an author or cannot access a particular piece of information, it is simply left out of the Works Cited page and you substitute a portion of the title for in-text citation.

Enotes.com also provides you with the necessary citation on the download page.

"Cite this page as follows:

"The Grail Theme in Twentieth-Century Literature - Introduction." Twentieth-Century Literary Criticism. Ed. Janet Witalec Project Editor. Vol. 142. Gale Cengage, 2004. eNotes.com. 2006. 22 Apr, 2011 <http://www.enotes.com/twentieth-century-criticism/

Note: When citing an online source, it is important to include all necessary dates. The citation above will include either 2 or 3 dates.

  • If there are three dates, the first date is the date of the original publication in traditional print. The second is the date of publication online or last modification online. The last date is today's date — the date you are citing the material.
  • If there are two dates, the date of publication and appearance online is the same, and will be the first date in the citation. The second date is today's date — the date you are citing the material."
