Billy says the tea tastes like almonds and that foreshadows what will happen to Billy because cyanide a poison is said to taste like almonds and the old lady keeps offering the tea that she put cyanide in because she is planning on killing him, and this shows he misjudged the old women because she is not as nice as she seemed. Another craft move that is demonstrated in the story is irony the author shows this in the story because the elderly lady is complimenting Billy and doesn't realize that she is not just saying it to be nice. I the passage it says, “...Tall and young and handsome, my dear, just exactly like you...Seventeen! she cried. Oh, it’s the perfect age.
However, when a women is looked at just as herself and not as a rich man’s daughter she is not seen a colleague to men but as an object that is to be pitied. Another example where setting comes into play is the mood created when Mabel tries to kiss Dr. Ferguson after he rescues her. He doesn’t want to kiss her. It takes everything he has just to look at her, but at the same time he can not turn away and escape the look in her eye (Lawrence 463). This creates a sympathetic mood because Dr. Ferguson feels bad for Maybel who has just become poor and attempted to kill herself.

The empowerment of black women wasn 't present in the Harlem Renaissance and in this novel it shows the empowerment of black women.Zora Neale Hurston’s writing in Their Eyes Were Watching God, departs from the Harlem Renaissance through the common recurrence of black women

Mildred’s constant addiction to gadgets represents her denial towards her problems and the little desire she has towards a better life. Her ignorance is another of her great weaknesses since she lives in a world where her feelings don’t matter and is easily influenced by tv and propaganda which explains her obsess towards hair dye and a soap opera family, even when Guy tries to talk to her all she seems able to talk about is her “family”, he tries to talk to her into reading some of the books he has found but she’s just worried that Captain Beatty might show up and “burn the house and the ‘family’” and asks him “why should I read?” “what for?” (34, Bradbury). Mildred doesn’t understand what she’s feeling and therefore prefers little amounts of superficial happiness that only give her joy for a little while, instead of reading and exterminating her ignorance because she’s too afraid to understand what is really happening inside of
Initially, Clarisse frustrates Montag with her quaint and unconventional thoughts and ideas but she soon intrigues him. He is defiant when she rubs the dandelion under his chin and it does not reflect, or leave “a yellow powder”. She tells him that it means that he is not in love but he insists that he is.

Although one reader could interpret her character as one that serves no purpose but as a vehicle to say something about Montag, thus having a “manic pixie dream girl” type of role in the novel, her death had a profound effect on Montag.
