關於英文most前面加the的用法問題。?

Agatha Christie had her first novel publish in 1920.In it, she created one of her most popular characters.

請問知識大大們,此句的most前面為什麼不用加the呢?表示最高級用法前面不是都要加the嗎?---the most popular ,還是它不是用最高級?謝謝。: )

    I am not sure why Helen tied "the" together with "most"! "Most" can follow almost anything.

    This is the most important thing of your life. (O)

    Honesty is most important! (O)

    A most unusual topic tonight is "#metoo". (O)

    For possessive pronoun belonging to her=one of her (most popular) characters

    For possessive adjective belonging to her=that is her (most popular) characters

    For (the most popular) relative phrase cannot be joined by a relative pronoun to the antecedent of the relative word--her Or she.

    In many phrases the definite article "the" is omitted when used with the superlative.eg:-the most popular=most popular. Then possessive adj /pronoun added to become "her" most popular.

    依據字典之解釋,the most 加於形容詞或副詞之前,表示"最"(即最高級),如the most beutiful woman 最美麗的女人。

    而most 加於形容詞或副詞之前,不加the,則表示"很","非常"的意思(非最高級"最") 如本題one of her most popular characters

    "她很受歡迎的特質之一",而以另一角度來說,此題之most 如解釋為最高級"最",顯然不合理,因最好的事物通常只有1個,不會有很多個最好,有很多個"最好",那這很多個就沒有一個有資格稱自己是最好的了。
