Question: How does Derry interpret the fairy tale ‘Beauty and the Beast’? What does he feel about himself? [CBSE (F) 2013]

Answer: Derry knows that the theme of the fairy tale is to love the inner beauty of a person, irrespective of the outside appearances. However, Derry thinks it to be all a farce. He finds the whole idea of transformation into a prince unrealistic. He is very pessimistic and fears that he would have to live alone for the rest of his life. In his fight with the world, he has forgotten to appreciate and love himself. He has forgotten that appearances are secondary.
