Book citations in MLA generally require the author, title of book, title of container, publisher, and publication date.
All entries should be DOUBLE SPACED and the second and any subsequent lines should be indented one-half inch (5 spaces). Alphabetize your list by the authors' last names. If you have more than one entry for an author, the entries should be arranged by date, beginning with the earliest.
