What Is Entertaiment?
The word entertainment has come to be associated primarily with amusement and divertissement. But in fact, the word is quite broad. It includes everything from an agreeable occupation of the mind to a distraction or diversion; from a formal ball or play to a daily crossword puzzle. It can also refer to the provision of hospitable accommodations for guests, or to a comic or picaresque novel. The verbs enter, penetrate, pierce, and probe carry a strong implication of forcing a way into something that has not been allowed to seep in or out freely. The concept of entertainment evolves with time and demonstrates a seemingly limitless capacity for creative remix.
