Abstract: Heroes of Sui and Tang Dynasties is a quite special historical novel that has great artistic achievements.Its author, Chu Renhuo, adopted existent materials when he was writing the novel and combined the various materials according to his own planning. As a result, miscellany becomes an obvious feature of the novel, a feature that is the result of the author’s belief in novel creation. According to the author, novels are"notes of elegant anecdotes."Therefore, innovation as is realized through the integration of various materials becomes a conscious artistic endeavor. Different from other novels with similar subject matter, Heroes of Sui and Tang Dynasties’ s focus is no longer on wars that give rise to or remove a kingdom. It is not about the legendary experiences of heroes’ fighting in the battlefield either. Instead, it centralizes on the combination of passion and politics and on the characters’ special interests and elegant tastes. The history as is depicted in the novel is a history in the eyes of scholars.
