Blurb/Shorttext:
Taoism, as a distinct type of philosophy, radically differs from many other philosophies in China, such as Confucianism and Mohism, by embracing a much broader, much greater and more transcendental view of the world. Many similar notions of Tao have been found in An Essay on Man penned by Alexander Pope. Therefore, a challenging and daring approach to employ Taoist perspectives to interpret this great poem has been undertaken. Hopefully, it would shed light upon some brand new ways of doing literary criticism, namely, by using non-western philosophical outlooks to re-read western literary works. The Taoist ideas used herein include oneness, small knowledge, instrumental mentality, and yin-yang. The method of using Taoism to read literary texts is dubbed Taocriticism.
