Do I need to reference the book I am writing about?
I am writing an essay on three short stories by Franz Kafka. I have done footnotes and a bibliography for all the secondary books and journals that I have referenced. My question is, do I need to do that for the Kafka stories I am writing about? Like when I quote directly from the text, do I need to reference that? And do I put it in my bibliography? Thanks.

Yes, you need to reference all material that is quoted or is not common knowledge.
You will need to provide both a footnote and an entry in your bibliography for the Kafka stories you are going to refer to and write about. Remember, its always safer to cite than not when you are ever in doubt.
Hope this helps!
