What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a fascinating area of study because of its ability to adapt to varying scales and media. For example, stories like Scheherazade (from the Persian professional storytelling tradition) can inspire a range of different forms of entertainment: composers Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski wrote orchestral works; director Pasolini made a film adaptation; and innovative video games are based on the story.
