《左传》作为中国古代史传文学的先驱，和第一部长篇章回历史小说的《三国演义》，在战争叙述的艺术上有着极高的文学价值。两者在叙述战争的过程中及其注重历史情节的因果关系，以战写人、以人写战。本文主要从两者的故事探讨其历史性、时间性、复杂性，从而全面地分析《三国演义》对于《左传》的借鉴，包括因果关系、战争场景、和人物形象。最后则浅谈《三国演义》因加入虚笔、夸张、对比、表现矛盾等的叙述手法，及多重角度的战争叙述，而使其战争叙述艺术有所发展。由于两部著作都相当的充实，笔者将多数以文本中较出名、较大的战争为例 子，并尽量以相同的战役作解释。Zuo Zhuan being the first famous work of ancient Chinese historiography, together with Three Kingdoms as the first historical long chapter’s novel, both works consist of high literature value in the artistic depiction of war. Both works focus on the narrative of the cause and effect of historical events, create characters from wars and depict wars from characters. This thesis expounds the reference of the narrative arts in military literature of Three Kingdoms from Zuo Zhuan, through discussing both works’ historic value, timeline and complexity. With the addition of fabrication, hyperbole, comparison, multi-angles of war scenes depiction and many more others narrative skills in Three Kingdoms, the narrative arts of military scenes in ancient Chinese literature has attained better development. This thesis will make use of mostly well-known wars as repetitive examples to expound as the two works consist of huge content.
