One reason Romeo is responsible for Gullet’s death and is own, is because he made the choice to go to the masquerade ball. If Romeo never went to the ball, he would not have meet Juliet. If he never met Juliet then he would not have fallen head over heels in love with her, enough to kill himself. “I’ll go along no such sight to be shown, But to rejoice in splendor of mine own. ” (1. 2. 103-104. ) in these lines Romeo says he will join Benevolent on going to Caplet’s ball. Romeo, not knowing one decision could create his fate, chose to try to “meet new people” instead of longing for Rosalie.
Another reason Romeo is in charge of the deaths of himself ND Juliet, is he killed Table Caplet. Because Romeo killed Table, his cousin by marriage at the time, he was exiled to Mantra and could no longer see his love, Juliet. If Romeo walked away from the fight instead of getting in the middle, he could have easily avoided being exiled and could have stayed in Verona with Juliet. “This days black fate on more days doth depend. This but begins the woe others must end. ” (3. 1. 81;82. ) in this quote, Romeo is expressing that this fight create people’s fate. He is also saying that the future will be affected by these actions.
Romeo should not have fought and killed Table if he wanted to keep Juliet. The last reason Romeo is responsible for their deaths, is because he killed himself next to Juliet. Romeo should not have killed himself in the first place, but since he did, Juliet saw it when she awoke as him leaving her and she wanted to join him. “Yea, noise? Then I’ll be brief. O happy dagger, this is thy sheath. There rust and let me die. ” (5. 3. 183-184. ) in this last quote, Juliet expresses how she kills herself to be with Romeo. In my opinion, Juliet should have left with Friar Lawrence so she old join the nunnery.
Romeo is responsible for both deaths due to all of his major choices. Because Romeo made three major choices during Romeo and Juliet that affected him and his lover, he ended up indirectly killing the both of them. In the end, the families feud ends, so in a way Romeo did them both a favor. But because Romeo and Juliet died Verona is a happy place once again. Romeo went to the ball, killed Table and killed himself next to Juliet. If he didn’t make these choices these two would live on. “For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo. “
