Did you know that Emily Dickinson mentioned the Beatles in three of her poems? Well -- in truth, she was writing about "beetles," but hey. More information on the creatures mentioned in the poetry of Emily Dickinson is HERE.
Dickinson never identified "George" or "Ringo" in any of her poems; however, she did name "John" in three poems, and she wrote of "Paul" in three other poems.
Of course, the real connection between the Beatles and Dickinson is the Fab Four's devotion to Emmett Lee Dickinson, Emily's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request.
