Anglo-Saxon warriors believed that as loyal retainers they should “[march] ahead of him, always there / at the front of the line" in their service to their lord or king (Beowulf 2497-98).
NOTE: the period goes AFTER the parentheses, not before, unless the entire quotation is indented.
[I gave you this EXACT example in the instructions for your essay.]
If a quotation you use is in quotation marks in the original, you must put it in double quotation marks when you quote it:
Beowulf tells his men,“‘This fight is not yours . . .’ ” (2532).
Beowulf knew “It would be hard to survive / unscathed near the hoard . . . .” (2547-48).
There is no comma, no “p.” -- just the name and the page number.
Your quotations must be 100% accurate. Take time to go over all of your quotations carefully to ensure that what you have written is EXACTLY what appears in the original. Seeing “INACCURATE” on your essay is not good.
Quotations of more than THREE lines of verse or FORTY words of prose in length should be indented 2.5 cm from the left margin only.
The website includes links to sites that have interactive exercises to help you with your grammar. I recommend that you make use of them as needed.
Errors are cropping up with the expressions “in which” (or “of which”) and “allow for.”
Remember: you must QUOTE any words you borrow from a source.
It is up to you to take responsibility for your work and to ensure that you follow the instructions for the assignment. The final product you submit is a reflection of yourself, so take time to ensure it is exactly as you would like it to be.
For subsequent essays, any failure to follow instructions as to the structure and format of the essay will result in a reduction in your grade for the paper.
