What is a long quote in MLA?
Rules for Long Quotations The long quotation is indented half an inch from the rest of the text, so it looks like a block of text. There are no quotation marks around the quotation. The period at the end of the quotation comes before your in-text citation as opposed to after, as it does with regular quotations.
