Herman Melville

On August 1, 1819, author Herman Melville was born in New York City. Although he experienced success early in his literary career, by the time of his death, his popularity had severely declined. It wasn’t until the “Melville Revival” in the early 20th century that his work won recognition, especially Moby-Dick which was hailed as one of the literary masterpieces of literature.

Do you remember reading Moby-Dick?
