News at Eleven: The David Wevill "archive," as it's described

by Bonhams, is expected to sell for about $10,000 US at a May 8 auction in London, in part because of the Canadian's close association with 20th-century literature's most tragic marital meltdown: the split that consumed American poet Sylvia Plath and scarred her adulterous husband, Ted Hughes, later Britain's poet laureate.

A Bonhams spokesman declined to comment to Postmedia News on Tuesday about Wevill's concerns, but invited the poet to contact the auction house directly.
