        La beaute, "Beauty is difficult, Yeats" said Aubrey Beardsley
            when Yeats asked why he drew horrors
            or at least not Burne-Jones
            and Beardsley knew he was dying and had to
            make his hit quickly

        hence no more B-J in his product.

            So very difficult, Yeats, beauty is so difficult.
                        (Canto LXXX)
