Hi.It may also be the case that in the English title, 'Beauty' is functioning as the abstract noun, as well/instead of a proper noun, hence the absence of the definite article.
No, not possible because Beast is not an abstract noun (unlike, say, 'beastliness') and more importantly it is a countable noun.According to your red letter potion's explanation,
would it be OK "Beauty and Beast"?
(Without the definite article before Beast)
Thank you in davance.
Oh, OK. I understand.No, not possible because Beast is not an abstract noun (unlike, say, 'beastliness') and more importantly it is a countable noun.
That does not work.Oh, OK. I understand.
I too think beast is not an abstract noun.
So, say, "Beauty & Bad" might work, but not "Beast", right?
No, I don't think it does, either.Yes, I suppose you could call your novel Beauty and Cruelty, although it doesn't sound very fashionable these days ...
