  10. Citing Quotations • Page number goes in parentheses after the end of the quotation (but before the final punctuation mark) • No “pg.” or “page” needed Example: The barber feels torn between his duties as a barber and a revolutionary. He thinks, “My destiny depends on the edge of this blade” (3).

  13. So what is analysis? Taking something apart to explain how it works Explaining how you interpret the text a certain way

  14. The Rules TRY TO TRY NOT TO Say “this quotation shows” Refer to the quotation as a “quotation” End a paragraph with a quotation Fill your entire paragraph with quotations (no more than 1/3) Leave the quotation alone • Use only the words in the quotation that you need • Explain how the quotation works by saying how the author communicates a feeling or idea • Cite correctly

  15. The Quotation Sandwich

  16. The Quotation Sandwich 1 | The Bun This is the point you are trying to make. 2 | The Filling This is how you introduce the quotation. 3 | The Meat (or Tofu  ) This is the quotation itself. 4 | The Bottom Bun This is your analysis – and the most important part of the sandwich!

  17. Example of a Quotation Sandwich 1 | The Bun This is the point you are trying to make. 2 | The Filling This is how you introduce the quotation. 3 | The Meat (or Tofu  ) This is the quotation itself. 4 | The Bottom Bun This is your analysis – and the most important part of the sandwich! In “Just Lather ,That’s All,” Téllez builds suspense by drawing out the details of the shave. The narrator explains how he“took the razor, opened up the two protective arms, exposed the blade and began the job” (2). Listing each detail makes the reader have to keep reading to find out what the barber does. The verbs, such as “opened up” and “exposed,” also remind the reader of the barber’s dilemma: should he cut the Captain’s throat?

  18. Your Turn Explain what makes up a quotation sandwich:

  19. Practice The point: The barber is proud of his profession. The quotation: “And this four-days’ growth of beard was a fitting challenge.”
