If it’s a short work or a section of a longer work, put the title in quotation marks. Please ask a question or give me a piece of your mind below!
That means you italicize or underline book titles (e.g.,). When you refer to the title of any kind of work in something you are writing, help your reader identify it as a title by capitalizing correctly and using proper punctuation.
Quotes, italics, and underlines are generally not used in the title on the work itself.

The title of a book, or any other published text or work of art, is a name for the work which is usually chosen by the author.
A title can be used to identify the work, to place it in context, to convey a minimal summary of its contents, and to pique the reader's curiosity. Texts without separate titles may be referred to by their incipit, especially those produced before the practice of titling became popular.
These guides recommend shorter or subsidiary works such as articles, chapters, and poems, be written in quotation marks, like: "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" is a poem by Robert Frost.
The AP Stylebook recommends that book titles be written in quotation marks.
That goes for any kind of title — a book, an article, a poem, a song, a film, etc.
By “important words” we mean everything other than articles (, etc.) This causes some confusion.
