Romeo and Juliet Smore

The Cause of Their Deaths

Who?

Even though some people think the person behind the cause of Romeo and Juliet's deaths is Capulet or Tybalt, it is really the Prince of Verona's fault. First, after Romeo killed Tybalt, the prince exiled him from Verona. To conclude his little rant, the prince said "...when he is found, that hour is his last" (3.1.191). Now Romeo cannot be with Juliet which drives them closer to their deaths. Also, Romeo should have never been punished. Tybalt would have been executed by law even if Romeo hadn't killed him: "His fault concluded what the law should end" (3.1.181). Romeo didn't even deserve to be exiled. If the prince had even the slightest amount of logic, Romeo wouldn't have died.
