American writer Herman Melville is considered one of the great authors of universal literature.

At the age of twenty, Melville began a series of trips around the world that would later serve as the basis and inspiration for several of his novels, including several years working as a whaler and passing various adventures in the Pacific Islands.

The sea and its world are fundamental in the work of Melville, as can be seen in Mardi (1849) or Taipi (1846). These works became a public success although the critic never accompanied his career.

His best-known work today is undoubtedly Moby Dick (1851), adapted to film and television on numerous occasions, but which at the time went completely unnoticed. In spite of everything, Melville continued writing until obtaining great stories like Benito Cereno or Bartleby the clerk.

Herman Melville died in 1891 and it was not until the 1920s that criticism recovered his work to place it as one of the most influential of the entire nineteenth century.
