As the late-Ming world neared its end taking with it the open culture it had fostered, this proved to be a challenge for the educated élite as they had to transition into the new era of Qing rule. The censorship of Qian's works and the posthumous denunciation of him by the Qianlong Emperor meant that his art was in danger of being erased from the literary scene. Although the emperor ruled in 1769 that all volumes of Qian's works be burned, such efforts proved to be unsuccessful.
