In Astral Weeks, Ed Park writes about the Ouroboros, the symbolic snake devouring its own tail that stands for the circularity of life and death. Such an image dates to Phoenician times, but Park focuses on two more contemporary appearances: E.R. Eddison's 1922 epic "The Worm Ouroboros" and Rafael Abalos' new young adult novel "Grimpow: The Invisible Road."
