What is Entertaiment?

Article: Entertaiment

Entertainment is a complex and varied human activity. It can be amusing, playful or serious and may be social, cultural or spiritual. Changing cultural contexts mean that entertainments can have different meanings: what was once seen as cruel or work by one culture may be considered entertaining by another. Entertainment is also fluid, with familiar themes and images crossing media: the story of Scheherazade, for example, has inspired music from composers including Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, a film and innovative video games.
