About this Article
Entertaiment is an interesting and fun topic to learn about. It is sometimes abbreviated to entmt, for example on a flier or in industry news publications or short hand note taking. It is often a source of inspiration for other forms of entertainment, such as the story of Scheherazade in professional storytelling and its many retellings through music (Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel, Szymanowski) film and video games.
