Your works cited connects the reader of your essay directly to your  source. So, what source did you use to assist you in your analysis?  If you used an anthology, you would use the textbook information in your works cited page.  If you used enotes, then you would use THIS information in your works cited:

Jerrald Ranta. "The Young Housewife." Masterplots II: Poetry, Revised Edition. Salem Press, 2002. eNotes.com. 2006. 9 Jul, 2010 <http://www.enotes.com/young-housewife-salem/

It all depends on the SOURCE or SOURCES you specifically used.  For assistance in works cited pages and format, you may want to consult the Purdue Owl Writing Lab.  It is a rich resource with examples and specific details regarding in-text citations, footnotes, as well as work cited formatting.
