What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a wide field that encompasses all forms of recreation. It can be playful, such as a cartoon or playground, serious, like a jazz concert or a drama, or even cerebral, like puzzles or strategy games. It can evoke complex emotions, from wonder and excitement to sorrow and contemplation. It can educate, challenge the intellect, or provide catharsis. It can be shared with others or enjoyed alone.
