Melville Herman (1819-1891) was an American novelist and poet, born in New York. He left school after the failure and the death of his father’s business in 1832 and was largely autodidact. Devouring Shakespeare, he was a lot inspired by his style. He published Moby-Dick or The Whale in Britain, in 1851, and later in New York. The work is an epic sea story and nowadays it is one of the great American novels. The opening line “call me Ishmael” is one of the most famous and recognizable opening line in western literature. White-Jacket; or, The World in a Man-of-War is the fifth book by American writer Herman Melville, first published in London in 1850.[1] The book is based on the author's fourteen months service in the United States Navy, aboard the frigate USS "Neversink"
