Philip Edward Thomas (3 March 1878 – 9 April 1917) was a British poet, essayist, and novelist. He is commonly considered a war poet, although few of his poems deal directly with his war experiences, and his career in poetry only came after he had already been a successful writer and literary critic. In 1915, he enlisted in the British Army to fight in the First World War and was killed in action during the Battle of Arras in 1917, soon after he arrived in France.

Edward Thomas (1878-1917), poet and writer, was born Philip Edward Thomas in Lambeth to Welsh-born parents on 3 March 1878. He was educated at St Paul's School, London and Lincoln College, Oxford. Having left St Paul's, Thomas studied for the civil service examination, a move which expressed parental ambition rather than his own, as he had reacted against the wordly views of his father, who worked for the Board of Trade and was prominent in Liberal politics.

Hazel Walford Davies, ‘Edward Thomas: twelve unpublished letters to . Edwards’, National Library of Wales Journal 28 (1994), 335-345. Amongst the other Edward Thomas papers in the National Library of Wales are the following: NLW, Edward and Helen Thomas Manuscripts.

On March 3, 1878, Philip Edward Thomas was born in Lambeth, London, the eldest of six sons of Welsh parents. As a child, Thomas spent many holidays in both Wales and Wiltshire, where he explored the landscape of Richard Jefferies, his first literary hero. Thomas was educated at several schools, including Battersea Grammar School and St. Paul's School in London. His father, who worked as a civil servant, wanted Thomas to enter the same field and urged his son to study for the civil service examination after leaving St. Paul's in 1895

Thomas’s travel book Beautiful Wales has more than stood the test of time and the collections Horae Solitariae, Rest and Unrest, and Light and Twilight are all very much oriented towards the country. It’s also of some significance that Thomas felt the need to point out that his anthology Celtic Stories was largely written when Wales and Ireland were entirely independent of England. Drawing upon these and other perspectives, Towns makes a convincing case for a wider appreciation of Thomas and this valuable collection is as good a starting point for debate as any.

Edward Thomas (3 March 1878 - 9 April 1917, London, England). Make me content With some sweetness From Wales Whose nightingales Have no wings, - From Wiltshire and Kent And Herefordshire, - And the villages there, - From the names, and the things No less. Let me sometimes dance With you, Or climb Or stand perchance In ecstasy, Fixed and free In a rhyme, As poets do. Edward Thomas. Poems by Edward Thomas : 95, 95. prev.
