Where do I place the colon that separates the title from a subtitle if the title ends with a quotation mark?
If the title ends with a quotation mark, insert the colon between the quotation mark and the subtitle. In the first example below, the title consists of a quotation from Shakespeare. In the second example, the title contains the title of a short story:
“To Be or Not to Be”: A Study of Shakespeare’s Hamlet
William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily”: Northern Progress Meets Southern Tradition
