 Reading this I was suddenly struck by the posibility of hubris on
Wolfe's part.

 Sure, Cyby as apprentice to Ultan; Ultan knowing exactly where to
lay hands on so many books, and knows much of their contents: so
learned, so wise. Wolfe (as Cyby) figuratively sitting at the feet
of Borges (as Ultan).

 But Cyby still has eyes to read, and learn and grow.  And any
apprentice can hope to inherit the master's mantle....
