In your sample student paper on Jane Austen, why do you include the short title in the following in-text citation: (Austen, Mansfield Park 5)?Two titles are listed under Austen’s name in the list of works cited, the novel Mansfield Park and a letter Austen wrote:
Austen, Jane. Mansfield Park. Edited by Kathryn Sutherland, Penguin Books, 2014.
———. “To Cassandra Austen.” Jane Austen’s Letters, edited by Deirdre Le Faye, 3rd ed., Oxford UP, 1995, pp. 25-28.The short title tells the reader which of the two works is being cited.
