What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is all the things that give pleasure to people and help them forget their problems for a while. It can take many forms, from an improvised party for two to a banquet for thousands; from a professional sport played on television to an activity that is practiced in a clubhouse; and from a story like Scheherazade (from the Persian professional storytelling tradition) to orchestral music by Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel, and Szymanowski, film adaptations, and innovative video games. Entertainment is constantly evolving and showing a remarkable capacity to inspire reworking in other media. Click on the links below to see examples of this.
