Articles About Entertaiment
The word entertainment is often associated with fun and humor, but it can also have a serious, even moral purpose. For example, the story of Scheherazade from the Persian professional storytelling tradition may entertain by illuminating the value of telling stories in times of danger. The same story can be adapted for any scale, from the intimacy of two people choosing private entertainment from a now enormous array of pre-recorded products, to banquets and parties arranged for any number of guests, to performances intended for thousands or staged for global audiences. The same story can then be retold in different media, from orchestral music by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, to film and innovative video games.
