Order of Herman Melville Books
Herman Melville (1819-1891) was an American author. Melville would gain fame in the 1840s, but it would be short lived and by his death, he was barely remembered. He is best known for his novel Moby-Dick, which is unanimously considered to be a literary classic. However, interestingly enough, the book didn’t even sell out its first priting of 3,000 copies. It would not be until the Melville Revival of the 1920s that Melville would regain fame posthumously.
Herman Melville became a published author in 1846 with the travelouge Typee:
A Peep at Polynesian Life. He would only continue writing until 1866, when he would be forced to take on a job as a customs inspector for the City of New York, where he worked for 19 years and was considered to be the only honest worker.
