Abstract

The research is based on Japanese Sinology of “Water Margin”, in which the thesis mainly focuses on three Japanese Sinologists, Ogawa Tamaki, Miyazaki Ichisada and Chubachi Masakazu. This research thus contains three parts that in each the viewpoints of them are discussed respectively. Ogawa Tamaki suggested that the novel was written mainly by two authors – Luo Guan Zhong and an anonymous person in the middle age of Ming Dynasty. With respect to Ogawa Tamaki, this study discusses the differences between the original and the present version of the Water Margin. Miyazaki Ichisada believed that the conjurer Gong-sun Sheng imposed great influence in the War of Liao, and it was possible to conjecture that the story of Liao and Fang La were on some extent related with each other. With inner proof of the novel, the study rejects this idea proposed by Miyazaki Ichisada. Masakazu Chubachi, in his thesis in 1970, considered there were some relationship between Yang Zhi and the story of Liao, but he gave up this idea 26 years later when he edited his book A Study Of The History Of Chinese Novels. Regarding Masakazu Chubachi, this study, therefore, discusses the relationship between the Drama, Song Gong Ming Pai Jiu Gong Ba Gua Zhen and the evolution of the story of Liao.
