What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a form of amusement, recreation, or leisure activity that gives pleasure and enjoyment. It includes a wide range of activities, such as games and sports, social interaction, and performance art. It may also include a form of artistic expression, such as writing and music. Entertaiment can be a significant part of children’s play, which is vital to their development and which often imitates adult activities and prepares them for responsibilities, such as work or parenting. It can also inspire retellings in other media, such as music or film, and innovative video games. One of the most famous examples is Scheherazade, a story from the Persian professional storytelling tradition that was reworked by composers Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel; director Pasolini made a film adaptation; and there have been several innovative game versions of the tale.
