SIDELIGHTS: Daniel Sanjiv Roberts told CA: "My principal areas of interest are in Romantic literature (especially with regard to topics such as the Lake writers, magazine writers, addiction, autobiography, language theory, orientalism, and canonicity, as well as authors such as Thomas De Quincey and Robert Southey) and postcolonial literature (particularly nationalist constructions of India and modern Indian literature). The postcolonial legacy of British imperialism in India is the point of intersection between my interests in Romanticism and Indian literature in English."

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:
