Stephen King’s IT: Why Maturin Is A Turtle

As noted by sources dedicated to Stephen King’s works, turtles are an important symbol within Indigenous cultures as they represent identity, autonomy, culture, and respect for the environment, while others see them as a representation of longevity, protection, healing, transformation, and the Earth. The symbol of a turtle carrying the world on its shell can be found in many Indigenous cultures, such as in the story of Turtle Island, where the turtle is considered the center of creation. Maturin has that role in King’s Macroverse, as it existed long before the creation of the universe, and it constantly withdrew into his shell, sleeping for long periods and rarely coming out. On one of those rare occasions where he came out, he had a stomachache which caused him to vomit out the mainstream universe. Maturin is a symbol of creation, protection, and life, while IT is a symbol of death and destruction, making them natural enemies.

As for why the turtle is named “Maturin”, it’s said to be a reference to Stephen Maturin, a fictional physician, naturalist, and spy from the Aubrey-Maturin series of novels by Patrick O’Brian, and Maturin discovered a new species of tortoise that he named “Testudo aubreii” after his friend Jack Aubrey. Maturin hasn’t appeared too often in Stephen King’s novels, but its role in the Macroverse is undeniable, and it’s not unlikely that King will someday expand on his story and role in the universe.
