Adding parenthetical citations

When you give a fact that came from a particular source, add the author’s last name and the page number where the information can be found in (parentheses) after the sentence or group of sentences:

When the realms of the universe were divided between the three brothers, Poseidon got the seas and oceans, Hades got the Underworld and the dead, and Zeus got the skies (Blackwell 44).

When you add a quotation, something that you copy word-for-word, from a source, add the author’s last name and the page number where the information can be found in (parentheses) after the sentence:

According to the Roman poet Ovid, the “nine daughters of king Pierus of Pella impiously assumed the names of the Muses and challenged the supremacy of the genuine Helicon goddesses” (Summers 923).
