What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is entertainment for the mind or senses that affords pleasure, diversion, or amusement. It may be an agreeable occupation for the mind (such as solving a crossword puzzle), or it may involve a performance or activity that provides an aesthetic effect, such as art, music or cinema. Familiar forms of entertainment often inspire retellings in different media, as for example the story of Scheherazade (a character from Persian professional storytelling tradition) inspired Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski to write orchestral works; Pasolini made a film version; and now there is an innovative video game.
