From the Paper:

"In most tragedies there is a villainous antagonist or supernatural agent that deliberately creates obstacles and difficult circumstances in an attempt to destroy or conquer the protagonist. Sometimes, as in Shakespeare's tragedies Macbeth and Hamlet, it is the protagonist's own tragic flaw that causes their demise. However, in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet there is no obvious villainous character or personal tragic flaw that leads to the untimely deaths of the two protagonists, rather fate is the opposing force in this tragedy."
