說 “淮汭”與 “豫章”:吳師入郢之役戰爭地理新探

Research output: Contribution to journalArticles

Abstract

西元前506年吳師入郢之役的戰爭地理過去共有三種論說。本文結合古文字資料、歷史文獻以及田野考察資料,重新解讀“淮汭”與“豫章”兩個關鍵地名,並以吳、楚之間的水、陸交通線為背景,重建這一戰役的戰爭地理。吳師的進兵與退兵都是利用淮河水道,而雙方的交戰則是在隨棗走廊之中往復。相較於過去的學說,本文的地理重構不只是立足於較為可靠的文獻基礎,同時展現出更為合理的空間邏輯關係。
Three contradictory theories have been proposed so far about the geography of the Battle of Wu Conquest of Ying in 506 BC. Combining paleographical sources, transmitted classics, and data collected from field trips, this article argues for a reinvestigation of this issue. Firstly, it probes into Huairei and Yuzhang, two controversial place names recorded in classical texts crucial for locating the war. Based on a precise understanding of place names, it reconstructs the geography of the battle by contextualizing it into the land and water transportation network in Central China. The result is explicit. The Wu State maneuvered its troops through the waterway of the Huai River during advancement and retreat, while land combats took place back and forth in the Suizao Corridor. As opposed to previous theories, this reconstruction of the war is not only textually solid but also topographically interconnected. Copyright © 2020 復旦大學出版社有限公司.
