What is Entertaiment?


Article about Entertaiment:

Entertainment is a form of amusement, often associated with pleasure or enjoyment. However, some forms of entertainment can also have a more serious purpose, for example ceremonies, religious festivals, or social commentary in the form of satire. Even activities that were originally used in hunting or war, such as archery or fencing, have developed into spectator sports and global competitions. The capacity for entertainment to cross over different media is illustrated by the way that stories like Scheherazade – from the Persian professional storytelling tradition – have inspired musical compositions (by Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski), films and innovative video games.
