Occupation: Novelist, teacher, sailor, lecturer, poet

Bio: Herman Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and poet. He is best known for his novel Moby-Dick. His first three books gained much contemporary attention, and after a fast-blooming literary success in the late 1840s, his popularity declined precipitously in the mid-1850s and never recovered during his lifetime. When he died in 1891, he was almost completely forgotten.

Quote of the day

For a Russian to be chivalrous with an American is a spiritual impossibility, a contradiction in terms.
