Description: This presentation analyzes and identifies the poetic elements of The Beatles' lyrics from 1965 to 1970. The primary goal is to demonstrate that the band's lyrics are serious poetry, not merely performance. The author will review scholarly books and articles about The Beatles' role in popular culture and literature, as well as use the author's own knowledge of poetry to interpret the findings of her close analysis of individual Beatles' songs.
