Article on Entertaiment
Something affording pleasure, divergence or amusement: solving a crossword puzzle is entertainment for many. Entertainment may also have a more serious purpose – for example, in the form of ceremony, celebration, religious festival or satire. It can be adapted to suit any scale, from a single person choosing private entertainment, to banquets for two, or performances for thousands and more. It can even be a medium within itself, as in the story of Scheherazade in the Persian professional storytelling tradition, which has been transformed into music (by Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski), film and video games.
