    Abstract:
    The article concentrates on two small and little known dramatic texts (pageants) written by E. M. Forster in the late 1930s entitled The Abinger Pageant and England’s Pleasant Land. The introductory part introduces the history of pageant in the early 20th century. The article presents briefly Forster’s earlier, mostly unsuccessful, dramatic experiments, analyses the two texts, their staging and publishing history of the two playlets, as well as their place in Forster’s further development as an artist as well as their place in Forsterian criticism. Certain consideration is also given to their musical setting as well as their author’s cooperation with the composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.
