When your quote or paraphrase spans multiple pages, you list the first and last page of the range, with a hyphen in between. 

For example:
 
  • Wordsworth extensively explored the role of emotion in the creative process (262-263).
  • According to Franck et al., “Current agricultural policies in the U.S. are contributing to the poor health of Americans” (326-327).
  • Romantic poetry is characterized by the "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (Wordsworth 262-263).
