  1. Incorporating Quotations 5 Paragraph Essay

  2. When using quotations… • Be sure it is cited. • Be sure it isn’t lonely. • Be sure it makes sense.

  3. 1. Be sure it is cited… • Direct quotation or paraphrasing must be cited Quotation: "The yellow star? Oh well, what of it? You don't die of it.“ Example: Elie’s father reacts to the yellow stars by saying, “’The yellow star? Oh well, what of it?’” (Wiesel 9). Example: Elie’s father, for example, is not concerned about the yellow stars, assuring them that one cannot die from it (Wiesel 9). Example: After being informed that they would have to wear the yellow star, Elie’s father remains calm.

  4. 2. Be sure it isn’t lonely… • A direct quotation  a complete sentence. • A direct quote cannot stand alone as a sentence. Quotation: "Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed." Example: Elie describes how he “shall never forget that night, the first night in the camp, which has turned [his] life into one long night” (Wiesel 32). Example: "Never shall I forget that night, the first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, seven times cursed and seven times sealed” (Wiesel 32). Example: Upon their arrival at Auschwitz, Elie discusses how that first night in the camp completely changed his life (Wiesel 32).

  5. 3. Be sure it makes sense… • Use sections just like phrases in a sentence. • Any minor changes in [ ] Quotation: "I was a body. Perhaps less than that even: a starved stomach. The stomach alone was aware of the passage of time." Example: Time became meaningless in the camp as Elie describes that his “stomach alone was aware of the passage of time” (Wiesel 50). Example: While at the camp, Elie was “a body. Perhaps less than that even: a starved stomach” (Wiesel 50). Example: After weeks of starvation, Elie explains that “I was a body” (Wiesel 50).

  6. practice Quotation: “We were not afraid. And yet, if a bomb had fallen on the blocks, it alone would have claimed hundreds of victims on the spot” (Wiesel 57).
