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.

Gill, Eric

Gill, Eric (1882–1940). Artist and type-designer. From 1907 to 1924 he was associated with the Ditchling community and with its press. In the last decade of his life he wrote a number of influential books defending the goodness of natural things, and, in life, even ‘its Rabelaisian buffoonery and pig-style coarseness. All these things are good and holy.’ His expression of this in his personal life created strain for those close to him.
