Because he loved her beyond the pale of reality
I would have understood "loved her beyond the pale" as in "love her beyond what's socially regarded as acceptable", but adding "of reality" makes no sense. It's like saying "he loved her beyond what's appropriate in the reality of this world", so I am confused. Is there anything wrong with this?
What are all the different ways you can use the idiom "beyond the pale"?
Any tip and trick for non-English speakers?
