Correct way to cite in MLA format?





I am writing an essay on Animal Farm, and in it I am using multiple sources by George Orwell. I know the parenthetic citation would normally go as follows:Animalism, a belief that anything "that goes upon four legs, or has wings" (Orwell, 33)...In this, the purpose of putting the author's name is to know which citation to go to in the bibliography. However, since I am citing more than one of Orwells works, how would I adjust this? Would I just put the title, or the title and the author?

    Animal farm is a great book, George orwell is a really good writer. I hope you read 1984 if you haven’t, but back to your question. if you just go onto Easybib.com they can show you exactly how to properly cite a quote, or just go to the MLA website and they will give you directions on it also. I actually had to write a paper on one of Orwell’s books last year and this is what I did.
