Has anyone read Peter Ackroyd's Milton in America?  At one point, the blind
Milton goes into the forest and sits under a tree.  Then follows a passage
of pronoun/identity confusion, with "I" and "he" switching back and forth.
Milton walks on, and is pulled up into a tree by a deer snare, which breaks
his leg.  This experience has a healing or rejunenating effect, because his
vision seems to be restored at least for a time.

Any of this remind you of anything?
