For poetry, use the line numbers. For the first reference, place "lines" in the citation. After the first time, just list the numbers. If you quote two or three lines, use slashes to designate the end of a line; place a space before and after the slash. Do not manually count lines numbers if none are given; instead, cite page number (or other division such as “canto 12”). If a stanza break occurs in the quotation, mark it with two forward slashes (//). Reproduce unusual spacing and indention as accurately as possible. If your quote ends in a dash, comma, or semicolon, you may omit that punctuation mark.
