Articles about Entertaiment

something affording pleasure or diversion; amusement: solving the crossword puzzle is an entertaining occupation for many people. From Old French entretenement, from Middle English entertainment.

Modern technology has changed the availability, cost, variety and quality of entertainment products. But the basic forms – story, music, theatre and games – remain recognisable. For example, Scheherazade, a famous story in the Persian professional storytelling tradition, has been retold in orchestral works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, as a film by Pasolini and as a computer game. In addition, children’s play often reflects or mimics adult entertainment. See also amusement, humour, recreation and distraction.
