  • Character Analysis Of The Mad Hatter In Alice In Wonderland, By Lewis Carroll

    The Mad Hatter is actually a representation of Alice’s own madness. Even though it is a difficult concept to grasp, bare with me. While Alice is at the engagement party dancing with Hamish, she keeps spouting off random thoughts that Hamish finds extremely strange. She says, “‘I had a sudden vision, all the ladies in trousers and the men in dresses!’” and Hamish responds: “‘it would be best to keep your visions to yourself, when in doubt, remain silent’” (Burton).

If one was to think about it though, Alice doesn;y state such random, odd things when in Wonderland. Instead another character does it for her, the Mad Hatter. The Mad Hatter is known for his random outbursts such as, asking what month it is, mid conversation (Carroll 81).

    our animal nature, our instinctual drives” (Bettelheim 76). Alice’s superego desires perfection and forces Alice to believe she is always inadequate as a result of her ego over sublimating.
