Incorporate a quote into you essay by using a lead-in or inserting it into the middle of a sentence. NO QUOTE DUMPING!!! EXAMPLES: An assertion of your own and a colon plus the quotation followed by a sentence concluding on the quote: Hamlet balances his ideas in this soliloquy: “Whether „tis nobler in the mind to suffer/ The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,/ Or to take arms against a sea of troubles/ And by opposing, end them” (3.1.58-61). Because of this, the viewer sees Hamlet‟s rational thought process and comes to the conclusion that he is not mad. An introducing phrase and the quotation imbedded into your assertion: Hamlet‟s comment in Act 5, scene 2, “[h]ere, thou incestuous, murderous, damned Dane” (292), shows that he ultimately does confront Claudius with his crimes, but are they crimes against Hamlet‟s father or Hamlet‟s mother? For Hamlet, “the soldiers‟ music and the rites of war/Speak loudly for him” (5.2.367-68) because his last acts before his death do indeed show soldierly nobility and leadership.
