titles of works

Place quotation marks around the names of books, movies, plays, poems, operas, television and radio programs, albums and songs, lecture titles, works of art and computer and video games (not course names or journals). Do not use italics.

  • The class discussed Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro.”

Do not use quotation marks for the Bible and books that are primarily catalogs of reference materials.
