Herman Melville was born on August 1, 1819 in New York City. He became a bank clerk, but in search of adventure, later worked on several ships, including the whale-ship "Acushnet". Not only Melville's early novels were inspired by his journeys, but above all his most extraordinary literary work "Moby Dick". But literary success soon faded and so after 1857 he published only some poetry. Herman Melville died on September 28, 1891 in New York.
