This may not be as complicated as you think! All you need to do is to ensure that you use quotation marks around the quote followed by the authors name, a comma, and then the date of the play and the play title itself if you feel that it is necessary. You will also need to ensure that the authors name and the date are written in brackets so they are simply presented as extra information for the reader.

You need not worry when it comes to including an important quote within the essay, article or assignment that you are writing as you are probably worrying about it a lot more than you should be. As long as you ensure that you have the name, date and play right you are not going to make any mistakes. You must ensure that you have quotation marks around the quote as it will simply not make any sense if you do not do this!

The best way for you to ensure that you are not going to make any mistakes is to write it within the paragraph so it is joined within the rest of the writing and is there to ensure that your writing is following and that the quote is there to support but to also compliment the rest of the paragraph.

If you have done this you are not going to have any problems with including a quote within your writing in the future and you are going to wonder why you thought it was so hard in the first place! There is nothing wrong with hesitating, but as long as you are clear with the way in which the quote needs to be written, you can apply these simple steps to any quotes that you may use and not just those of Shakespeare.
