This is actually a pretty detailed question for this short space. Golding uses repetition and figurative language throughout the book. Consider Simon's statement:

"You'll get back to where you came from...You’ll get back all right."

The repetition allows for Simon to get his simple point across. It also foreshadows his own death.
