The act of entertaining or the state of being entertained. Also, an agreeable occupation for the mind or a diversion or amusement: Solving the daily crossword puzzle is entertainment for many. A public or private recreation or leisure activity: A theatrical production; a game…. Bates and Ferri (2010) define entertainment as an activity understood objectively, that communicates from text to audience via external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience and involves a passive form of activity.

One of the most famous examples of the power of entertainment is the story of Scheherazade, from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, which inspired a number of orchestral works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; a film adaptation; and an innovative video game.
