Summary
This introduction to Herman Melville's life and work from the Famous Authors series begins by introducing the city of New York, Melville's hometown, and the influence living in the busiest maritime port in the world had on his work. Melville eventually left home to work on a sail boat, and soon went to New Bedford, Massachusetts to become a crew member on a whaling ship, an experience that he used when writing the masterpiece Moby Dick. The film details the dangerous work of whaling and Melville's experiences at sea
