Similes use words such as like and as to compare two things. From the text, “he appeared to be about thirty years old, not old, but robustly made and of a countenance which under happier circumstance it thought would display manliness and sensibility”. Referring to this text, Jose argues that Tench utilized similes to compare the captive to a man that had such characteristics (51). On the other hand, according to Wales, Tench made the masculinity of the captive more realistic by comparing him to someone he already had in mind (25). It would have been vague and unrealistic to substantiate that the man was thirty and he had all those attributes without comparison to someone else.
