In this article, I seek to bring Henry James and Fredric Jameson into constellation by thinking of both writers as ‘late’. I talk about the way in which lateness has been used as a critical term in discussions of James’ twentieth century writings, before going on to use the writings of Theodor Adorno to demonstrate the inseparability of form and content in ‘late’ work. I conclude with some final reflections on the lateness of some of Jameson’s more recent cultural theory.
