Titles of poems are set in Roman type, capitalized, and set within quotation marks. Long poems, and poems published separately as books, are in italics (CMS15, 8.191); titles of plays are italicized (CMS15, 8.193).

Titles within Titles
Titles within titles are italicized (CMS15, 17.58)

“The Idler” and “The Adventurer,” ed. W. J. Bate, John M. Bullitt and L. F. Powell (New Haven: Yale Univ., Press, 1963), 69.

Citing Poetic Lines
Usually, line numbers, with “l.” or “ll.” will suffice. In the event that the poem is subdivided so that it has cantos or stanzas, then we follow CM 8.194, using Arabic numbers, thus:

canto 2, ll. 212-14   
subsequent references   (2:214-16)

act 2, scene 3, lines 222-24 (in text),

but if following a quotation, or in parentheses, resort to the standard II.iii.222-24.

Canto, book, act, scene are not capitalized (CM 8.194).

When referring to chapters in narrative, lower-case chapter, but use Arabic number, i.e., chapter 3 (CM 8.187)
