Actually, if no one else minds, I'd like to see some of the replies to this.  I
read somewhere that Shakespeare specialized in kingly roles, but don't know any
details.

Many years ago, I noticed a play on I/eye in Sonnet 149, lines 1, 2, 3, 5,
6, 7, 9, 12. See Stephen Booth's edition of the Sonnets (2nd ed.)  for more
information about Shakespeare's "super-subtle exercise on I and eye" (583).
