Significance
Herman Melville made a lot of novels and
is an example on how great a person can
become. His message was to write stories
on experience: he wrote most of his great
stories on experience.

Influences
I think all of the sailors that
Herman Melville sailed with
influenced him the most. They
gave him experiences for the stories
he wrote and one even saved his
life! Also, the sailors told him
tails of Mocha Dick that gave
him the idea for Moby-Dick.

Quotes
"Your constant sailing and
whaling will soon be the death of
you!!!" his wife would always say.
He was always sailing and managed
to get himself in many danngerous
situations.

Thoughts
I think he really was an
important figure in history. He
made legendary novels and
somewhat added to the culture of
the americas. I'd love to meet him,
but he's dead. If i met him, i'd
really complement him on his
work. If he was living, he would
feel great about his writing
because his writing was not really
appreciated until the 1920's.

Poem
herman melville, a man
unappreciated.
yet years later after his death,
his renassiance began.
herman, a whaler, wrote some
real classic novels.
He had traveled all around the
world just for hhis stories.
His stories which is loved
throughout the world.
