e. Citations and References


Citations are divided into direct and indirect citations.

1) Direct Citations

Gramsci adds a very important new dimension with his concept of national -popular: a class cannot achieve national leadership, and become hegemonic, if it confines itself only to class interests; it must take into account the popular and democratic demands and struggles of the people which do not have a purely class character, that is, which do not arise directly out of the relations of production. (Simon, 1999:27)

2) Indirect Citations

According to Abrams, expressive criticism is when literature is understood as one focusing on the author. Meanwhile, mimetic criticism is seen from the relation between the real world beyond the text and/or becoming the background of the writing (Abrams, 1999:51-52).


References are written in an alphabetical order and build use software references, for examples: Mendeley, Zotero, Endnote, etc.
