The phrase " mad as a hatter " pre-dates Carroll's works. The Hatter character, alongside all the other fictional beings, first appears in Lewis Carroll 's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. In it, the Hatter explains to Alice that he and the March Hare are always having tea because when he tried to sing for the foul-tempered Queen of Hearts , she sentenced him to death for "murdering the time", but he escapes decapitation.
In retaliation, Time referred to as a "he" in the novel halts himself in respect to the Hatter, keeping him and the March Hare stuck at or pm forever. When Alice arrives at the tea party, the Hatter is characterised by switching places on the table at any given time, making short, personal remarks, asking unanswerable riddles and reciting nonsensical poetry, all of which eventually drives Alice away.
