Each source you cite in the essay must appear in yourworks-cited list; likewise, each entry in the works-cited list must be cited in your text.
Authors' names are inverted (last name first); if a work has more than oneauthor, invert only the first author's name, follow it with a comma, then continue listingthe rest of the authors. If you have cited more than one work by a particular author,order them alphabetically by title, and use three hyphens in place of the author's namefor every entry after the first.

This is known as a "hanging indent."
