Google honors Herman Melville with a nice Moby Dick Doodle. Captain Ahab stands on a boat -- and the sperm whale Moby Dick can be seen in the background. The Melville-Doodle looks like a old-fashined woodcut-print illustration. Herman Melville was born on Aug 1st, 1819. He was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and poet. He is best known for his book Moby-Dick. When Herman Melville died in 1891, he was almost completely forgotten. It was not until the "Melville Revival" in the early 20th century that his work won recognition, especially Moby-Dick, which was hailed as one of the literary masterpieces of both American and world literature.
