Quoting Shakespeare is addressed specifically by MLA. The rules for quoting prose drama and verse drama (Shakespeare) are a bit different.

To see detailed instructions, use the resources I linked below.

The link from Richland College provides examples on creating references for your Works Cited page for Shakespeare plays from different sources (book, online, movie, etc.).

The link from Dr. Mark Womack, a professor at UH, gives detailed examples on quoting Shakespeare.

The page from Louisiana State gives additional examples of quotes and references, and Illinois Valley has a great page on citing various types of literary works including poetry, drama, and Shakespeare specifically.
