December 31, 1918. The war to end all wars was over and nearly three hundred men were returning home to their families, long left behind. When the HMS Iolaire left port on her fateful journey she was overflowing with joyful soldiers who had survived the gun but would not survive the sea. It was the Beast of Holm that sank her that night, plunging the men into the frigid waters no more than 20 feet from shore. 205 died , 82 survived. Iolaire, Karen Clavelle's debut collection of poetry, takes letters, news clippings and her own unique voice to stitch together one of the most tragic tales in maritime history.

Poet and educator Karen Clavelle has long been fascinated with Scottish history and the long poem tradition. Her work has appeard in several literary journals including Prairie Fire and Contemporary Verse II. Iolaire is Karen's first collection of poetry. She lives and writes in Winnipeg.
