[Forum] RE: How to format a quoted verse when it's a subtitle
No, it's not meant to be an epigraph. I'm just curious to figure out if, because the subtitle itself is a verse from the Bible if the subtitle needs to be in quotation marks or if it's okay for it not to be. It's a strange one since subtitles are not usually direct verses from the Bible. Thanks for

[Forum] RE: Capitalization of a subtitle referred to in text?
I understand the intention. I just disagree with the strategy. I would still use the title-colon-subtitle when referring to it down below. Otherwise the reader is going to think, "Hey! I thought we were talking about Strauss's Don Quixote, but now we're talking about this other work. What's goi

[Forum] RE: How to format a quoted verse when it's a subtitle
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." This is his subtitle: "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." It's a Bible verse that he's quoted but he is using it as a subtitle. Since this is a subtitle would I instead italcize it and tak

[Forum] RE: Capitalization with colon in heading
[quote='carteredit' pid='892' dateline='1271782224'] The manuscript I'm editing includes two levels of heads within chapters. Some of the heads include a colon. Here are two examples. Cape Mendocino: A Focus for Land Dispute The Final Battle: the Tugboat [i]Ranger[/i] Arrives I know that when

[Forum] RE: Capitalization of a subtitle referred to in text?
I've never heard of using the subtitle alone to refer to a work. I think it would confuse the reader who might then think that the author is now referring to a completely different work. I would have to see the whole paragraph including the reference to the piece that you mentioned but didn't show

Is it possible that the author meant for the quotation to be an epigraph as opposed to a subtitle? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epigraph_(literature) http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/book/ed17/part2/ch13/psec036.html

[Forum] Setting a naked subtitle
If a subtitle appears in running text without the title, how should it be set. Some seem to prefer quotation marks, others italics—but what is Chicago's stance? As an example: This novel, originally subtitled The Way Home, was first published in 1952. I do have a opinion on this, but since y

[Forum] RE: Setting a naked subtitle
It's really pretty simple. According to CMOS 14.94 "Book titles and subtitles are italicized." It shouldn't matter if the subtitle stands alone or in context with the main title, it would still be italicized. http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/16/ch14/ch14_sec094.html

[Forum] Capitalization of a subtitle referred to in text?
I have a sentence that reads: There is no more influential tale of knighthood than Cervantes’ [i]Don Quixote[/i], which inspired Strauss’s “Fantastic Variations on a Theme of Knightly Character.” Here the writer is referring to [i]Don Quixote[/i] by Richard Strauss, which has a subtitle of “Fa
