Herman Melville is a Leo and was born in The Year of the Rabbit


Herman Melville was born in New York City, NY on Sunday, August 1, 1819 (G.I. Generation generation). He is 203 years old and is a Leo. Herman Melville (August 1, 1819 – September 28, 1891) was an American novelist, short story writer, and poet from the American Renaissance period. Most of his writings were published between 1846 and 1857. Best known for his sea adventure Typee (1846) and his whaling novel Moby-Dick (1851), he was almost forgotten during the last thirty years of his life. Melville’s writing draws on his experience at sea as a common sailor, exploration of literature and philosophy, and engagement in the contradictions of American society in a period of rapid change. The main characteristic of his style is probably pervasive allusion, reflecting his written sources. Melville’s way of adapting what he read for his own new purposes, scholar Stanley T. Williams wrote, “was a transforming power comparable to Shakespeare’s”. Despite the immense critical acclaim that Moby-Dick has received over the decades, the book was panned by critics at the time of its initial publication, and it ruined Melville’s literary reputation during his own lifetime.

He worked as a surveyor for the Erie Canal before taking a position on the crew of a New York ship headed for Liverpool. Later, he sailed on the whaling ship Acushnet, an experience that inspired his masterpiece novel, Moby-Dick. Herman Melville is a member of Richest Celebrities and Novelists.
