To reach as full an appreciation as possible of a literary piece as art , we as readers sometimes need to consider the historical significance of the subject matter, the events, and as many of the allusions as possible. Examples might include the following: knowledge of the context and significance of "abolitionist" in Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn deepens reader appreciation of the author's satire; knowledge of the history of English suppression of the Irish enlightens the reader's understanding of Swift's satire in "A Modest Proposal"; and knowledge of the type of leader England had in George I and Swift's inversion of him as the King of Lilliput in Gulliver's Travels bring new dimensions of appreciation for the text.
