To What Extent Was Juliet Responsible For Romeo's Death

112 Words1 Page

Juliet was at fault for her and Romeo’s death because she stabbed herself. Due to Juliet’s “untimely death,” Romeo poisoned himself, thinking that she was dead. When Juliet woke up and found Romeo dead, she took Romeo’s dagger and stabbed herself.”This is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die”(V.III.170). These were Juliet’s last words before she stabbed herself with the dagger of the man she had driven to poisoning himself. While Friar Lawrence was explaining what happened he said “But, as it seems, did violence on herself”(V.III.264). Juliet killed Romeo by pretending to be dead and she helped Romeo feel sad and pushed him to commit suicide, thus, killing them both.
