Melville was born in New York City, the third child of a merchant. Within ten years of his son's death, Melville's metaphysical epic Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land was published in 1876. Typee, his first book, was followed by a sequel, Omoo (1847). Both were successful and they gave him the financial basis to marry Elizabeth "Lizzie" Shaw, a daughter of a prominent Boston family. In 1886, his other son Stanwix died of apparent tuberculosis, and Melville retired. During his last years, he privately published two volumes of poetry, left one volume unpublished, and returned to prose of the sea.

Celebrated American author Herman Melville wrote 'Moby-Dick' and several other sea-adventure novels before turning to poetry later in his literary career. In 1876, he published the epic Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land, based on a previous trip to the region. Melville had finally begun work on another novel when he died of a heart attack in New York City on September 28, 1891. His early fame had vanished by then, but many of his books were eventually reprinted, and his name began slowly gaining traction in the literary world.

Clarel is the longest poem in American literature, stretching to almost 18,000 lines (longer even than European classics such as the Iliad, Aeneid and Paradise Lost). As well its great length, Clarel is notable for being the major work of Melville's later years; in the three decades between The Confidence Man (1857) and Billy Budd (begun in 1888), Melville devoted himself solely to writing poetry, with Clarel and the short American Civil War collection, Battle Pieces, being his most significant achievements.

Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land. This title of the poem pretty much gives away its topic, but offers little indication of enormous complexity, much less its massive length. Within almost 18,000 lines, Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land bursts with symbolism. Among the most significant is Ruth who appears wearing a snowy robe and thus becomes a vital representation of purity and innocence.

My interest in the poem began with an interpretive study, Herman Melville's Clarel, an unpublished doctoral dissertation at Yale University, 1943. Having lived with Clarel about as long as Melville did while he was making it, I can testify that it is a pyramid of a poem; there is little danger. Over 14 million journal, magazine, and newspaper articles.
