Comments: "In the class of poetry to which it belongs, the Art of Preserving Health holds a distinguished place. No writer of the eighteenth century had so masterful a grasp of blank verse as is shown in parts of this poem. The powerful passage descriptive of the plague (book iii) has been highly praised." -- DNB I, 567. Foxon A296.
