    Perhaps the impetus for the classic Moby Dick.

    And Robert Louis Stevenson (“Treasure Island” and “Jekyll/Hyde”) died in Samoa while writing “Weir of Hermiston.”

    So, was Moby Dick white because he was covered in chalk dust?

    See how tiny Alice is when Madeline carries her up! [When I was little and walking with Mommy and Daddy and would get tired, I’d exclaim to Dad, “carry me up!”] The expressions on the kids’ faces are exquisite!

    I don’t know, but it kept rearing its might white head in the water.

    He got the idea for “Moby Dick” from an actual story of the Essex destroyed by a mutant whale. (No whale before of since ever attacked a whaling ship. Too bad.)

    I think Melville died poor.

    Moby Dick was a commercial failure. His previous books, which were writtena s travelogues, were very successful, but the whale tale was savaged by the critics and ignored by the public. Part of the reason was that it was published in England forst, and the publisher there left off the epilogue, which tied together all the loose ends. American critics and readers took their cues from the British, and Melville’s career and fortunes headed for the toilet. Interest in his works finally picked up after WWI, too late to benefit him personally.
