When quoting, should I state the page number/line number? Or does it not matter? :S

I was just wondering if it is necessary to provide the page number (or line number for poems) when you are quoting in an English Literature exam...

Help?

You don't need to quote lines, spend your time analysing instead :)

You need to use quotes in all parts of the exam but you don't need the page or line number.

You don't need to say what line or page number you got it from but what I have been told to do for my English Language exam is to set the paragraph out like this:

"In the first paragraph bob says "............". This builds......" etc....

My teacher said that would help you gain marks structuring it similar to this.

But whatever you do, remember to put your quotations in speech marks " :)
