Happiness in the Fourth Epistle of Alexander Pope's An Essay on man

"What, then, may we say An Essay on man and its corresponding view of happiness really is? Is it not in many ways the Stoic world view in eighteenth century dress? I believe this to be the case, and the remainder of this present essay will be devoted to understanding in greater detail Pope's basic ideas about happiness in this particular context."
