This study offers a possibly complete, commented and comprehensive analytical index, as far as the intentions and information of this author were available to him, out from Wilfred Ruprecht Bion’s poetical and literary inspirations that were used in his theoretical and technical contributions both to psycho-analysis and observation of the psychoanalytic act. Those inspirations were explicitly and implicitly used by him. The paper follows the lead initiated by previous studies, available in book form, about psycho-analytical roots, and inspirations stemming theories of knowledge, including philosophy of mathematics used by the same author.
