[R] access sublists by a variable

I'd like to access the elements of a list within another list with the
help of a variable.
dict <- list( "24" = c(1,2,3,6,12,24,48,72,96,120,144,168,720),
"168" = c(1,12,24,48,72,96,120,144,168,336,504,672),
"8760" = c(1,24,168,730,4380,8760)
dict$"24" works fine, but
a <- "24"
Unfortunately dict[a] does not work for me, because I see no possibility
to access the inner elements of list "24" in that case
i.e. dict[a] returns the whole list and not the first element.
What is the correct syntax to access those elements with the help of a
Thanks in advance
