Shakespeare on Screen in Francophonia Stylesheet


-    Shakespeare references must come from The Oxford Shakespeare: The Complete Works. Second edition. Ed. Stanley Wells, Gary Taylor, et al. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 2005 [1986].

-    No double spaces

-    Play references: III.2.78-79

-    Line references: 79-80; 110-12; 236-37; 78ff.

-    Space before and after the slash (–)

-    Double quotation marks: "xxx"

-    Footnote reference after the punctuation mark. Ex. […] as Peter Happé notes, emphasizing "the life and ministry of Christ, especially in terms of Christ's role as a preacher." 3

-    Punctuation mark inside quotes. Same example. Even when just one word is in quotation marks. Ex. This, I would suggest, is the civility the Prologue seems to "miss." Use single quotation marks inside double quotation marks to indicate a quote within another quote.

-    Capital A in "Act I, scene 3"
