    About the hunter Ranuccio...

    Dear Teachers,
    From Mirror, Mirror,
    "The unicorn was presumed to be male, but Ranuccio found himself unwilling to look and see. In any event there was a radiance, and Ranuccio was blinded by the sense of being visited by light itself."
    Is this simply saying that he was blinded by light?
    "The deer's hind legs crushed, Ranuccio straddled the powerful neck and pulled the head back, and readied himself for the reckoning that the creature would do with his eyes."
    What does it mean by "the reckoning that the creature would do with his eyes"?

    More or less, though it does give the light a spiritual quality
    It would try to stop him from killing it with its eyes, or make him feel guilty about it, etc
