Abstract: 明清战争小说中,矮将娶美丽女将的现象颇有特色,然学术界缺乏对此现象的研究。笔者将《水浒全传》、《封神演义》、《说唐三传》当中的四对夫妻视为一组研究对象,梳理其叙事模式,命名为“矮将美妻”现象。随后,论文分别以外貌、公共领域、私人领域为焦点,系统化探讨“矮将美妻”现象中女将与矮将形象,以理解形象背后体现的文化和审美价值与缺失。最后,论文通过研究女将的形象嬗变揭示“矮将美妻”现象没落的原因,并将矮将形象放入中国“非性”传统中,以探讨“矮将美妻”现象所展现的人性矛盾。In the Military Romance of Ming and Qing dynasties, the phenomenon of dwarf generals marrying beautiful female generals is distinctive, however there is a lack of research on this field. Thus, after sorting and analyzing the characteristic of four such couples from All Men Are Brothers, Investiture of the Gods, and Three Legends of the Tang Dynasty, this article names it as the phenomenon of " Dwarf Generals and Their Pretty Wives ". Subsequently, the shaping of these characters were systematically explored in the sequence of appearance, battlefield, and family to understand the cultural and aesthetic values, and losses behind the shaping of these characters. In addition, the study of these female generals’ transformation shows the reason for the decline of the “Dwarf Generals and Their Pretty Wives” phenomenon. Furthermore, the dwarf generals were put into the context of Chinese "non-sex" tradition to analyze the ambivalence of the authors and readers towards the phenomenon of " Dwarf Generals and Their Pretty Wives ".
