To Zolton Abraham---As for S's influence on Melville, the poet Charles Olson
wrote a pretty seminal book showing it--called "CALL ME ISHMAEL" which is still
available. Emerson of course was very influenced and Dickinson's favorite
Shakespeare play was ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA....she identified with ANTONY however
(and thus what happens with Dollabella in Act 5 wasn't that important to her).
Well, maybe this will be helpful,.

Two bibliographies come to mind as starting points, keeping in mind that
"influence" is always a dangerous thing to argue, unless you're willing to dig
through journals, correspondence, etc.  I believe there exists a bib on
Melville by Brian Higgins, and somewhat older, of course, in Eight American
Authors, ed. James Woodress.  Check the annual bib chapter in American Literary
Scholarship for more recent material.  For documentation on M's activities,
etc--check the MOST RECENT edition of The Melville Log.  I hope this helps you
start...
