large, unblinking eye".
It's interesting that another article in the same issue is at pains to
avoid this mistake. In "The Ogre Blinded and _The Lord of the
Rings_" , Daniel Peretti notes that Sauron, who is never described
clearly, is sometimes called The Eye, but Peretti emphasizes that
Sauron is not just an eye:
"Yet we know that Sauron is, at least, humanoid. We have the words of
Gollum..." (p. 138).
