This sounds like something that few, if any, for which will be able to provide exact assistance.  The elements here that make complete assistance difficult is the idea of the chosen text.  Since you have presumably selected this text, it is going to fall upon your broad shoulders as to how to examine the path of happiness taken by individuals in it.  For instance, you might have to identify the primary motivation of specific characters in your chosen text.  Analyzing what they do to act upon this happiness and how they respond when their attempts are validated, negated, or deferred will be another part of the answer to such a question.  I think you might need to go back to the text and chart out how individuals or characters within it act upon their dreams, their hopes, and what it is they wish to accomplish in the course of the text and conflicts within it.
