Here's an example, using a quote from page 278 of Oedipus:
Oedipus describes the prophecy that has frightened him: "'I was fated to lie with my mother, / and show to daylight an accursed breed / which men would not endure'" (865-67). In addition to suggesting the importance of the gods, this prophecy does in fact foreshadow the fate of which Oedipus is afraid.
*Notice how I introduced the
the quote accurately, then explained
I also used a slash (/) to designate a line break. You must do that with poems and plays (anything that has line numbers next to it). Also notice how I placed line numbers in parentheses rather than page number. Again, do this with poems and plays. With long poems, such as The Iliad, which has Book numbers, include them: (2.134-36). This quote would have come from Book 2, lines 134 to 136. Also use proper format with more than four lines of quoted material, whether prose or poetry: Indent, etc..
