Happy birthday to Herman Melville, born today in 1819. Fun fact: when he first sent his manuscript for Moby Dick to his publishers they replied "First, we must ask, does it have to be a whale?" https://t.co/pEchUN541c

Herman Melville, born on this day in 1819, never really stopped writing—but, writes John Updike, by abstaining from a forced productivity, the novelist preserved his communion with greatness. https://t.co/OhvAZt2Vb9

Tal día como hoy, en 1819, nacía Herman Melville. Buena ocasión para traer aquí el mapamundi literario de Moby Dick que creó Edward Everett Henry en 1956. Porque, a fin de cuentas, tanto los mapas como la literatura nos hacen viajar. https://t.co/aNm6sg1NrI

Happy bday writer Herman Melville, b.1819, NYC. “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” “Life's a voyage that's homeward bound.” “We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men( and women).”

It’s Herman Melville’s birthday and this is one of my favourite pages of Moby-Dick. It’s so good that I don’t even hate the alliteration. https://t.co/es4eRSTnce
