I'm writing an essay for the play Waiting for Godot, and there is a passage I want to use:
ESTRAGON: (very insidious). But what about Saturday? And is it Saturday? Is it not rather Sunday? (Pause.) Or Monday? (Pause.) Or Friday?
To express the dislocation of time in the play, I want to quote the passage starting from 'Saturday;' but I don't know whether I'm allowed to replace the question marks with commas, as that would make the passage fit with my sentence.
I want to try to avoid quoting only the days with commas, because it feels detached and somewhat useless to reference each day with a separate quote, like "Monday" and "Tuesday" and "Wednesday," at least to me.
Am I allowed to change question mark punctuation when referencing MLA, or must I find another way around it?
