The full text of this article is available through the EBSCOhost. It is erroneously cataloged as if Emily Dickinson herself is the author of the article, so you won't be able to find it by searching for Monteiro's name.
In the future, finding the article will be part of the homework assignment, but this time I'll give you the link.
Victory Comes Late
But when we refer to the poem, we have to put quotation marks around the title of a poem.
I am writing about "Victory Comes Late."
The title at the top of the article Monteiro wrote is
Dickinson's VICTORY COMES LATEBut in MLA style, we put poem titles in quotation marks. Since we also have to put quotation marks around the title of Monteiro's article, when writing an MLA-style works cited entry, we begin this way:
Monteiro, Katherine A. "Dickinson's 'Victory Comes Late'."
Note that the period goes inside the final close-quotation mark, but not inside the single quotes that denote the title of the work.
Your STW or Basic Comp textbook will have detailed examples on how
to present the titles of novels, collections of poems, plays, etc.
