Verse quotations 
should follow the lineation and indentation of the original. Never centre lines of poetry. For example:

Keats describes a desire to escape the pain of reality in Ode to a Nightingale:

O for a beaker full of the warm South, 
    Full of the true, the blushful Hippocrene, 
      With beaded bubbles winking at the brim, 
          And purple-stained mouth
    That I might drink, and leave the world unseen, 
      And with thee fade away into the forest dim - 6

Corresponding footnote:

John Keats, ‘Ode to a Nightingale’, in The Complete Poems, ed. by John Barnard, 3rd edn (London: Penguin, 1988), pp. 346-48 (p. 346), ll. 15-20.
Play quotations are treated as long quotations when over forty words or two lines of verse. Spelling and punctuation within the text should be preserved. Aim to present the long play quotation as it appears in the text. In verse quotations, the speakers’ names are positioned to the left of the text.

For example:

MACBETH                              Prithee peace: 
I dare do all that may become a man, 
Who dares more is none.

LADY MACBETH                   What beast was’t then 

That made you break this enterprise to me? 
When you durst do it, then you were a man
And to be more than what you were, you would 
Be so much more the man.

 (Macbeth, I.7.46–51) 7
