Explanation

This sentence is worded in a tricky way, as the pivot words but and barely negate each other.

Thus, the blank parallels the clue “saw deeply.” (Proof here means “proofread” or “edit,” and galleys are “drafts of a book about to be published.”) How ironic that an author who sees into the hearts of his characters is practically blind in real life! Interpret is an attractive trap, but Joyce had a vision problem, not an intellectual one.

Hence See, distinguish are correct options!
