Herman Melville (1819–1891) found early success with stories inspired by his adventures in the South Seas. His fortunes declined with the 1851 publication of Moby-Dick, now recognized as a masterpiece but scorned by Melville’s contemporaries. The author was obliged to work as a New York City customs inspector and died in obscurity, three decades before the critical reassessment of his work.
These is my opinion:
If you love Moby Dick and you still want more Melville checkout Bartleby an Benito Cereno

Melville has a tendency to overload his narrative, but since this is a short book it doesn't ruin the tale. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Jim F. Baughman
Very disappointing. Bruce convinced me to read it, and it sucked. Who the hell can read Melville, anyway? Gimme a break. That whale coulda been pink.Published 14 months ago by doctorgus
