Guide to Using MLA Style for Bibliographic Citations in
Rhetorical Criticism

These pages are designed as a quick aid to applying the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 5th ed., by Joseph Gibaldi, to the specific needs of students of rhetorical criticism and public discourse. Each page includes a brief description of the basic rules with representative parenthetical references embedded in the text of the description, followed by the requisite citations. Each description is thus also a demonstration of the correct style. Also included are page references to similar examples and explanations in the MLA Handbook.
