During that time the country was ravaged by successive wars and officials as well as the common people suffered greatly. The social status of men of letters fell sharply. Most of them lived a poor life and could find little way out of the predicament. As a result they were often in a rather low mood and felt frustrated, humiliated and despaired. There can be found a fin de siecle trace in their works.
