The Chorus states, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; whose misadventure piteous overthrows doth with their death bury their parents’ strife.” This quote is an example of foreshadowing because it clearly states that Romeo and Juliet are going to die in the end.

William Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, is a play about Romeo and Juliet and their short-lived love. Fueled by a family grudge the Capulet and Montague households could never see “eye to eye”.

But after her father yells at her and tells her if she doesn’t marry she’ll be kicked out of the house; she goes to Friar Laurence for advice. When Juliet takes the potion Friar Laurence gives her she has to think about it. This is something Romeo probably wouldn’t do. But love over comes her decision and she takes it.

Friar tells Juliet “Thy husband in the bosom there lies dead” (V.iii.155). He tells her that Romeo has died because he thought she was actually dead and couldn’t stand to be without her. Friar stated, “Miscarried by my fault, let my old life be sacrificed some hour before his time unto the rigor of severest law” (V.iii.267-269).

Romeo, Lord and Lady Capulet and Friar Lawrence are all held responsible for the dramatic death of Juliet. Throughout the play there are many times where you can clearly see that Romeo is a big part of Juliet’s death. Firstly, Romeo would not stay away from Juliet at the ball and followed her home afterwards. When Romeo says ‟Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?” (2.2.37),
Juliet was so distracted by the needs of herself and Romeo that she tried to kill herself three times: first when Romeo is banished, then again to avoid marrying Paris, and finally when she stabbed herself. “If I profane with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine, the gentle sin is this, my lips… O then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do, they pray: grant thou, lest faith turn into despair.” (1.5.104-107…114-115). This shows that Romeo wasn’t able to live without Juliet; he couldn’t even go a day without kissing her. They also believed that they weren’t good enough for the other. For example, Romeo always kept Juliet on a pedestal.
