Huxiang culture has deeply influenced Tang Haoming, but few researchers interpret and criticize Tang Haoming's historical novels from the perspective of Huxiang culture, resulting in misreading and critical comments. Tang Haoming is a writer deeply influenced by traditional culture. There are two contexts for the generation of Tang Haoming's Historical Novels: one is the transformation of the perspective of historical literature. The second is the prosperity of modern "New Confucianism". Scholars' images in Tang Haoming's historical novels have traditional cultural personality, while women's images are women suppressed by traditional culture. Combining the research results of Hunan academic circles including Tang Haoming himself on Huxiang culture, and thinking about traditional culture, this paper analyzes the motivation of Tang Haoming's literary creation and his sense of responsibility of consciously carrying on cultural inheritance, and reveals the cultural characteristics and ideological value of his historical novels, taking "being practical" and "suffering consciousness" as the breakthrough point.
