Which MLA handbook?

Recommended Posts

I did not realize there were so many choices. I thought it was like The Elements of Style, a single book.


Imagine my surprise when I typed MLA handbook into Amazons search engine. 1200+ results.


So please tell me what the most common choice for a high school student is. I already have and plan to use The Elements of Style also.

We have this one



There is a more current edition.
