Articles about Entertaiment

Entertaining is something that affords pleasure, diversion or amusement. It can range from a solo activity like solving a crossword or playing video games to a performance intended for an audience of thousands. It can involve a sense of fun and laughter, but many entertainments have a serious purpose, whether in the form of ceremony, celebration or religious festival, or in art and satire. The power of entertainment is demonstrated by the way a story such as the Scheherazade, from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, can inspire composers like Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel to create orchestral pieces, directors like Pasolini to make films and game designers to produce innovative video games.
