Entertaiment – Something Affording Pleasure, Diversion Or Amusement


Article By:

Entertaiment – something affording pleasure, diversion or amusement: from the old French entretenement. It may involve physical activity – from hunting, fishing or war to spectator sports; mental activities – from solving crosswords to reading literature; or even learning, as with children’s play or a formal education. Entertainment evolves and can be adapted for a single person or for a whole group, from intimate family entertainment to performances for thousands and beyond. It can also cross media: stories like Scheherazade – from the Persian professional storytelling tradition – have inspired music by Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; film directors Pasolini and Woody Allen; and innovative video games.
