Brian Reade notes that in the eight drawings to the Lysistrata '...there was a return to something like the manner of decorations on Greek pottery... the Lysistrata series, and the illustrations to Juvenal's Sixth Satire, never completed and never published in book form, contain among them the only successful examples of true satire in all Beardsley's output. The old burlesque spirit of his schooldays was revived in the roughest of them and mixed with a controlled aggression, delivered against both sexes, and unlike anything to be found in the satirical works of other artists, since or before...' (Reade, Beardsley, London, 1967, p. 18).
