ENC 1102 Spring 2008 MLA STYLE: QUOTING (from class on Wed., Jan. 30) Quote set-up All direct quotes must be set up with your own words, meaning the sentence must begin with your own words. The set-up for the quote must not cause incorrect grammar. So, the merging of your own words and a direct quote must result in one complete sentence that obeys the rules of grammar. Setting up a quote properly is called integrating the quote. Two ways to set up quotes (always acceptable/approved…highly recommended) *Note that these two set-ups are basically the same for prose and poetry. (1) Obvious/direct set-up : Adler claims, “There are two ways in which one can own a book” (237) . Hughes writes, “I guess you learn from me—/although you’re older—and white—/and somewhat more free” (lines 38-40) . (2) Subtle set-up : So many readers “forget that it is possible for a man to acquire the idea” (Adler 238) . The black student struggles to understand “what is true for you or me/at twenty-two, my age”
