How to Insert Italics Text in LaTeX

You can write italic text in LaTeX by using the \textit{} command. The text which should be italic goes between the { and } symbol. See the example in Listing 1 in which "and parts of it" will be rendered italic.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
This is text \textit{and parts of it} are italic.
\end{document}
