Working on a story, I looked up this word in my computer's dictionary to be sure I wasn't using it incorrectly. To my surprise, I discovered a new meaning for thwart:
preposition & adverb archaic or poetic/literary
from one side to another side of; across: [as prep.] a pink-tinged cloud spread thwart the shore

Rereading this now, I realize I had forgotten about athwart. Now the meaning of thwart makes sense…

Ah, see, I never would've thought of that.

So, "thwart" as a preposition, huh? Amazing! Thank you, Pat, for further enriching my vocabulary! :)
