Block Indenting Poetry

Did you know that the rule for indenting block quotations is slightly different for prose and poetry?


“Use block quotations appropriately.
When quoting longer stretches of prose (more than four lines in your paper), set it off from the body of the paper in an indented block quotation. In the case of poetry, more than three lines of verse should be quoted en bloc.”
