這裡提到發揚光大的莫過於Lewis Carroll《Alice's Adventures in Wonderland》
Whilst not being the source of the phrase, we can't mention 'as mad as a hatter' and leave out Lewis Carroll. His 'Hatter' character fromAlice's Adventures in Wonderland(1865) is of course the best-known mad hatter of them all. The Hatter is not actually described as mad in the story - merely a participant at 'a mad tea-party'; although he can hardly be called sane.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.”
