How would I cite the novel 1984 or a website in an MLA works cited page?
2 Answers | Add Yours
A novel should always be cited in the following format:
Last name, First Name. Title. City: Publisher, Year.
For 1984 that would look like this:
Orwell, George. 1984. London: Secker and Warburg, 1949.
As for the electronic citation, it would depend on the webpage and its contents. I can at least give you a general citation for webpages according to the MLA style (the style always used for literary papers):
Complete publication information may not be available for a Web site; provide what is given.
Title of the Site. Editor. Date and/or Version Number. Name of Sponsoring Institution. Date of Access .
Encyclopedia Mythica. 2004. 13 May 2004 .
Last name first name title country publisher year. However nowadays it is easier to use websites to help you like citationmachine.net
