Herman Melville was born in the Zodiac sign Leo (The Lion), and 1819 is also the year of Rabbit (兔) in the Chinese Zodiac.
He began his career as an Erie Canal surveyor before joining the crew of a ship sailing from New York to Liverpool. Later, he boarded the whaling ship Acushnet, which inspired his masterpiece, Moby-Dick.
Despite the enormous critical acclaim that Moby-Dick has garnered over the years, critics lambasted the book when it was first published, and it wrecked Melville's literary career during his lifetime.
In New York City, he and his seven siblings were raised by his parents, Maria Gansevoort Melvill and Allan Melvill. Novelist Herman Melville (after Melville) married Elizabeth Shaw in 1847, and the couple had two daughters and two sons.
