In "First Love", a highly intelligent, witty narrator looks back to a highly repressive world – his own inner world – where he behaves as a child, a baby, now and then even as a foetus. This article wants to show how "First Love" has been influenced, from the first line to the last, by the author's experiences of psychoanalysis. The theories of Wilfred Bion, who was Beckett's analyst for some years, seem to be the watermark of important parts of this text, which could be named a 'metapsychological story'.
