Thomas, R.S. ( Ronald Stuart) (1913–2000) Welsh poet. He was a clergyman for more than 40 years. Thomas' early verse is collected in Song at the Year's Turning (1955); it embodies his characteristic concerns with Wales and its people, and with the implications of his faith. His later work evinces a fierce distrust of the modern world.
