When doing an "in-text citation" or "parenthetical citation" (a citation within your paper) for MLA, you would need to put the author's last name and the page number where you obtained that resource. For instance:
Human beings have been described as "symbol-using animals" (Burke 3).
For more examples on MLA in-text citations, please refer to Purdue's Online Writing Lab: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/2/
