Who seems most devastated by Juliet’s death?
In Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet, Juliet actually dies twice, once faked and once by her own hand. After taking the vial of potion given to her by Friar Laurence in Act IV, Juliet appears dead to those who discover her, including the Nurse, Lady Capulet, Lord Capulet and Paris. In most performances of the play this is a very powerful scene as all four characters express their grief at the same time and you can hear one voice on top of the next.
Since she has been closest to Juliet for most of the girl's life the Nurse is quite distraught after finding Juliet's limp body. In Scene 5, she says,
O woe, O woeful, woeful, woeful day!
Most lamentable day, most woeful day
That ever, ever I did yet behold!
O day, O day, O day, O hateful day!
Never was seen so black a day as this!
O woeful day, O woeful day!
Despised, distressèd, hated, martyred, killed!
Uncomfortable time, why cam’st thou now
To murder, murder our solemnity?
O child! O child! My soul and not my child!
Dead art thou! Alack, my child is dead,
And with my child my joys are burièd.
Accursed, unhappy, wretched, hateful day!
Most miserable hour that e’er time saw
In lasting labor of his pilgrimage!
But one, poor one, one poor and loving child,
But one thing to rejoice and solace in,
And cruel death hath catched it from my sight!
Beguiled, divorcèd, wrongèd, spited, slain!
Most detestable death, by thee beguiled,
By cruel, cruel thee quite overthrown!
O love! O life! Not life, but love in death!
Thou art not conquered. Beauty’s ensign yet
Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks,
And death’s pale flag is not advancèd there.
But I can give thee more,
For I will ray her statue in pure gold,
That whiles Verona by that name is known,
There shall no figure at such rate be set
As that of true and faithful Juliet.
