My interest in Eugene O'Neill was sparked by my preference for American drama during my graduate study in China. In my studies in the United States, my Chinese ethnic heritage has made the Oriental dimension of O'Neill's works especially attractive. Dr. Joseph M. DeFalco reconfirmed my interest in O'Neill's drama by means of a course of independent study. He opened different perspectives for me, which I narrowed down to the Taoistic influence in the works of O'Neill.
