What is Paris' fatal flaw in romeo and Juliet?
The idea of a "fatal flaw" is much like the "tragic flaw" which the somewhat rigid and artificial theory of tragedy advanced in Aristotle's Poetics demands as a characteristic of a true tragic hero. Paris, however, is not by anyone's definition a tragic hero, and so there is no reason why we should go looking for a fatal flaw in him. However, for those people who insist that if someone dies, it must be because of some "fatal flaw" in their character, we can only note that Paris meets his demise while paying his respects to his deceased fiancee, at which time he spots Romeo, a notorious Montague who has been banished from Verona, hanging around the tomb. Rather than notifying the city watch of the presence of this outlaw, and leaving the enforcement of the Prince's decree to those best suited to do so, Paris, despite Romeo's warnings to "tempt not a desperate man", attempts to apprehend Romeo. In the fight which ensues, Paris is quickly dispatched. The only flaw which can be said to have led to this fatality is the one which led Paris to make this ill-advised decision: his inability to judge when it is inappropriate to try to make a citizen's arrest.
Are you sure that she has to have a "fatal flaw"? What if she doesn't have one? You could, I suppose, make up something like "Juliet is naive and so loyal to romeo she can't see what's in front of her." But it's not really true. What is it exactly that she can't see? I can't think of anything--Juliet understands her predicament quite well, actually.
Romeo's tragic flaw in Romeo and Juliet was the fact that Romeo believed Juliet to have killed herself when she had not. This led to Romeo killing himself.

Romeo an Juliet were both naive and acted upon emotion.
Does everyone have to have a "fatal flaw"? Is this really a sane way to look at humanity? Maybe Paris was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and made one mistake: not listening to Romeo's warning "tempt not a desperate man!" If things had turned out differently, Paris might have been a hero for apprehending a banished man who was apparently trying to break into someone's tomb. To be sure, Paris is not… Read More

Romeo's problems are caused, not by a flaw in his character, but by the relatives of his beloved, particularly the odious Tybalt.

If you are asking what the flaw is in the tragedy then I would say that it would be that Romeo was too pessimistic and was like, woe is me my wife is dead now i must die, and then led him to killing himself. If he wouldn't of acted so suddenly he would have been alive to see Juliet wake up and find that she wasn't dead. If you are asking what the tragedy… Read More

Primarily, characters whom we like and empathize with (to wit, Romeo and Juliet) come to a nasty end. We feel sad because they die. Questions like whether there is a "tragic hero", or a "tragic flaw" or a main character of high social standing are all irrelevant and don't apply to this play anyway.
Nothing. I think you mean Fatal FLAW, which is not an idiom but easily defined. A flaw is something wrong, and fatal is deadly, so it means something that results in literal or figurative death.
She takes the potion on Tuesday night, when the friar had planned that she should take it Wednesday night. Even if Friar John had got through, Romeo would have come 24 hours too late.

There is no question what genre Shakespeare thought it was under. It's a tragedy. Some critics, obsessed with the "tragic hero" and "tragic flaw" theories… Read More
