I expect you to use correctly at least one quotation in each body paragraph. At the end of the paper I want to see the words Works Cited and a correct bibliographic entry. Just use this one if you want.

Bradbury, Ray. Fahrenheit 451. New York: Ballatine Books, 1991.

You will only be allowed one submission, so write it and then paste it into the box, single-spaced with one blank line between paragraphs.
