The Legend of Wu Shuang relying on Jing Yuan Mutiny during the domination of Emperor De Zong of Tang,tells about the intricate love story between Wang Xianke and Liu Wushuang. The reason why Xue Diao chose the real event-Jing Yuan Mutiny-as the core event,why chose the real persons Wang Xianke,Liu Wushuang,Li Qiyun as the main characters all need profound research.Historical truth is the foundation of legend imagination,but doesn't hinder the story's plot development. Although Xue Diao's extraction and lifetime deeds were limited,their influence to his thought was distinct. Xue Diao's uncle-Xue Qi-unexpectedly killed in the mutiny,the tragedy of the family impacted him va-stly. Moreover,the just one remained government affairs of Xue Diao in Zi Zhi Tong Jian was also connected with mutiny. The age that Xue Diao lived was turbulent,political situation was severely struck by incessant mutinies. Therefore,Xue Diao's work The Legend of Wu Shuang should have more profound expres-sion.
