I'm back in school after several years of not thinking about essays. I forgot how to do everything! How do I cite an essay in a textbook in MLA format?

I am citing heavily from several essays by different authors in a textbook. The textbook was not compiled by these authors. I have the name of the authors, titles of essays, years printed, but not the page numbers within the original essays. How do I parenthetically cite these quotes within the text of the essay and how do I list the sources in the bibliography?
