Who is responsible for R&J's Death?

Romeo & Juliet

Although Friar Laurence gave Juliet the potion, Romeo and Juliet are responsible for their own death. Juliet couldn't live without Romeo, Juliet needs to learn how to have space & time alone. The text says "And there die strangers ere my Romeo comes? Or, if i live, is it not very like" (Shakespeare Act IV Scene III). Juliet is saying she will most likely die without Romeo. Friar Laurence also knew that Juliet would kill herself if anything happened to Romeo. The text says " Or in my cell there would she kill herself" (Shakespeare Act V Scene III). Juliet killed herself because Romeo died. It is her own fault that she died because no one told her to kill herself.

Poem : Hopless by Sumone

"I remember the day when we met
A day i now do regret
Not because of the person you are
It‘s because we didn‘t make it that far

You were a special person to me
An angel, joyful, happy and free
We had something special for us two
But for you i just will not do" (Sumone 1-8).


Along with Romeo & Juliet this poem talks about relationships not making it that far. In line #4 she says "It's because we didn't make it that far" (Sumone 4). Romeo & Juliet didn't make it that far because they committed suicide . Romeo was obsessed with Juliet he thought she was the best thing in the world to him. The text says "You were a special person to me An angel, joyful, happy and free" (Sumone 5-6). Juliet always felt amazing when she was with Romeo. Romeo made her feel loved and happy, Then they committed suicide.
