      Could be, though I'm not sure which book you're thinking of. I can tell you that the "I / eye" metaphor goes way back in critical analysis of poety, particularly in Reader-Response approaches. I'm not sure how useful I think that is with Sauron, but it may be worth a ponder or two.

      Best,
      Jason
