- In this paper, we examine some interpreta-tions of the «dead town» litterary topic in the French and Spanish poetry of the Fin-de-Siècle. We take into consideration, on the one hand, the relations between this topic and some older usages of the expres-sion «dead town» and, on the other, some of its possible influences on other topics of the Fin-de-Siècle, specifically the gardens.
