Beauty

John Keats

The English poet, John Keats, opened his 1818 poem, Endymion, with the lines:

A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness;

Here Keats has captured an eternal truth about the beautiful. Our ability (and need) to not only recognise and appreciate beautiful things, but to cherish the memory of beauty which we have encountered in the past, is what separates us from the lower order of animals.

The Beauty section of Decadent Set, therefore,  is devoted to the appreciation of all things beautiful.
