Hubris: Excessive pride and disrespect for the natural order of things.
Too harsh a punishment: A tragic hero often receives a punishment that is too harsh given the mistakes they made.
Othello: I have a pain upon my forehead, here Desdemona: Why that’s with watching, ’twill away again. Let me but bind it hard, within this hour It will be well. Othello: No, your handkerchief’s too little. Leave my head alone. He has too much pride to confront her directly and address his concerns
Othello: I pray you, in your letters... Speak of me as I am. Nothing extenuate, Nor set down aught in malice. Then must you speak Of one that loved not wisely, but too well. Of one not easily jealous, but being wrought, Perplexed in the extreme. Of one whose hand, Like the base Indian, threw a pearl away Richer than all his tribe. Of one whose subdued eyes, Albeit unused to the melting mood, Drop tears as fast as the Arabian trees Their medicinal gum.
