The Power of Entertaiment


Article About Entertaiment

Essentially, entertainment is an activity that satisfies the human need to be entertained. Bates and Ferri (2010) define it as an objectified activity that encompasses communication between text and audience, offers pleasure from external stimulus, requires an audience to be passive and involves the consumption of products. The power of entertainment is demonstrated by the way in which familiar works, such as the story of Scheherazade, have inspired multiple retellings; for example, composers Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel wrote musical pieces based on the tale, director Pasolini made a film adaptation, and there are many innovative video games based on this legendary figure from professional storytelling tradition.
