SIDELIGHTS:

Konstantinos Blatanis told CA: "Writing can be a number of different and contradictory things all at the same time. It is often difficult but rewarding, intimidating yet inviting, tedious while invigorating. More than anything else, it is true that writing always entails a promise. I undertook my project on popular culture icons in American popular culture with the promise that I would find out more about a long series of modern American plays that I considered attractive, intriguing, and challenging. At the same time, I worked with the hope that my research would lead me to a greater and deeper understanding of issues pertaining directly to the current culture enveloping both the playwrights and me. Needless to say, the very plays I dealt with and the playwrights themselves were my primary sources of inspiration."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
