How to Cite an Anthology in MLA Format
- To cite the complete anthology or list of references, start with the editors followed by a quotation "ed" and "a" or for several editors, "eds;" (for edited by). It is an exceptional kind of citation. For an anthology or group of references, to cite a specific piece, refer to a collection or anthology as below:
—Achebe, Chinua, and C. W. Barton, eds. Things Fall Apart. . Lagos: William Heinemann Ltd., 1958. Print.
—McCallum, Rachelle, ed. Frontier: A Collection of New Canadian Short Stories. Maple Ridge, BC: Polar Expressions, 2008. Print.
Edited Reference or Section of a Book
- When citing works that have been retrieved from an edited reference or anthology or a section of a book, then this is how the citation should appear:
—Last name, First name. "Title of Essay." Title of Collection. Ed. Editor's Name(s). City of Publication: Publisher, Year. Page range of entry. Medium of Publication.
Additional sample is listed below:
—Gray, Thomas Alan. "One Day Winner." Frontier: A Collection of New Canadian Short Stories. Ed. Rachelle McCallum. Maple Ridge, BC: Polar Expressions, 2008. 36-37. Print.
