Quotation Marks in Titles

Use quotation marks to set off the title of a short written work or parts of a longer work.

Short works include short stories, chapters from a book, one-act plays, short poems, essays, songs, and articles.

Parts of a longer work include episodes in a series, songs, parts of a longer music composition, or an item named as part of a collection.

Examples:
“The Highwayman” (poem)

“The Star-Spangled Banner” (song)

“The Dead” by James Joyce (short story)

“Dan Quayle Was Right” (article)

“The Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy” (part of longer work)
