    please help

    I'm looking for a term which roughly means: if the reader of a piece of work is required to have exterior knowledge of the background of the text, ie the context. for example...in order to understand the Lady Chatterely scandel, one must have knowledge of the views of society on adultery at the time. I hope you understand. Thank you.
