Herman Melville (1819-91) stammte aus einer verarmten New Yorker Familie. Er ging früh zur See und verdingte sich als Matrose, unter anderem auch auf Walfängern. Seine Reisen führten ihn bis in die Südsee. 1844 kehrte er in die USA zurück, lebte als freier Schriftsteller und war von 1866-85 als Zollinspektor in New York tätig. Der Romancier und Autor von Kurzgeschichten und Lyrik gilt als einer der bedeutendsten amerikanischen Schriftsteller. Sein Meisterwerk 'Moby Dick' zählt zu den Klassikern der Weltliteratur.
