MLA Citation Style Guide: One Author
This guide contains examples of common citation formats in MLA (Modern Language Association) Style
The general format below refers to a book with one author.
If you are dealing with one editor instead of one author, insert the editor's name in the place where the author's name is now, followed by a comma and the word "ed." without the quotation marks. The rest of the format remains the same.
