What is Entertaiment?



Entertaiment is a broad, multi-faceted concept that encompasses many genres, mediums and styles. It can be defined objectively, entails communication between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience to exist and occurs in a passive form. As a result, it can mean something quite different for each individual viewer/audience. This is reflected in the variety of familiar themes and images, which can be found across diverse forms of media and demonstrate a remarkable capacity for creative remix. The word is derived from the medieval Latin intertenere, from the prefix inter meaning “inside,” and the suffix tenere.
