Forgive the homeworky question, please? :(

So I'm finally starting my paper that is due tomorrow. I decided to start with the works cited page. I'm writing about Beowulf and I'm citing it as from an anthology. However, Beowulf has no author. I remember learning that when things have no author, you simply start with the title on the works cited. But my friend said I should start with the author of the anthology. That doesn't sound right to me, since my information isn't coming directly from him, but from the work in his book. But he's insisting, and my MLA handbook isn't helping much. Halp?

ETA: I think I've got it now, thanks! New question: What was the last big paper you wrote about? How long was it?
