    Exclamation MLA Quoting Help

    I am writing a research paper about a criticism of a book. One article I am using (By Mul) quotes the author of the book (Hochschild) but Hochschild speaks the quote. I asked my teacher who I should quote and he said Mul, but she did not say it so I am confused on who to use. Please help! Do I cite it as (Hochschild) of (Mul 590)?

    Re: MLA Quoting Help

    I agree with your teacher your source for the quote was Mul. You text will make it clear that it s a quote in a quote and the source will enable a reader to track it down. You could also, if you prefer, check out the original source and cite that.
