  1. Titles in Titles MLA Style 2

  2. Common Examples • There are four common ways in which a title might appear in another title: • the title of a long work in the title of a long work • the title of a short work in the title of a long work • the title of a long work in the title of a short work • the title of a short work in the title of a short work

  3. Long Work in Long Work • As we know, the title of a long work is italicized. When the title of a long work appears in the title of another long work, it is NOT italicized to distinguish it from the rest of the title. • Examples: • Romeo and Juliet in Modern Times • The Poetics of Harry Potter • Reading Twilight with My Dad

  4. Short Work in Long Work • As we know, the title of a short work is put in quotation marks. This is also true when the title of a short work appears in the title of a long work. In keeping with the rules for titles of long works, the whole title should be italicized. • Examples: • Symbolism in “The Tell-Tale Heart” • “Mending Wall” and Other Poems

  5. Long Work in Short Work • As we know, the title of a long work is italicized. This is also true when the title of a long work appears in the title of a short work. In keeping with the rules for titles of short works, the whole title should be in quotation marks. • Examples: • “Figurative Language in Of Mice and Men” • “An Analysis of Lord of the Flies” • “Macbeth and the Supernatural”

  6. Short Work in Short Work • As we know, the title of a short work is written in quotation marks. When the title of a short work appears in the title of another short work, it is placed in SINGLE-quotation marks. When single and double quotation marks appear right next to each other, a space may be inserted to improve readability. • Examples: • “An Analysis of ‘Mending Wall’” • “Teaching the ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ to Kindergarteners”
