In early , Zelda again became pregnant. Although some writers have said that Scott's diaries include an entry referring to "Zelda and her abortionist", there is, in fact, no such entry.
Zelda's thoughts on the second pregnancy are unknown, but in the first draft of The Beautiful and Damned , the novel Scott was completing, he wrote a scene in which the main female character Gloria believes she is pregnant and Anthony suggests she "talk to some woman and find out what's best to be done. Most of them fix it some way. As The Beautiful and Damned neared publication, Burton Rascoe , the freshly appointed literary editor of the New York Tribune , approached Zelda for an opportunity to entice readers with a cheeky review of Scott's latest work.
In her review, she made joking reference to the use of her diaries in Scott's work, but the lifted material became a genuine source of resentment: . It seems to me that on one page I recognized a portion of an old diary of mine which mysteriously disappeared shortly after my marriage, and, also, scraps of letters which, though considerably edited, sound to me vaguely familiar.
In fact, Mr. Fitzgerald—I believe that is how he spells his name—seems to believe that plagiarism begins at home. The piece led to Zelda receiving offers from other magazines. Though ostensibly a piece about the decline of the flapper lifestyle, Zelda's biographer Nancy Milford wrote that the essay was "a defense of her own code of existence. The Flapper awoke from her lethargy of sub-deb-ism, bobbed her hair, put on her choicest pair of earrings and a great deal of audacity and rouge and went into the battle. She flirted because it was fun to flirt and wore a one-piece bathing suit because she had a good figure Mothers disapproved of their sons taking the Flapper to dances, to teas, to swim and most of all to heart.
Zelda continued writing, selling several short stories and articles. She helped Scott write the play The Vegetable, but when it flopped the Fitzgeralds found themselves in debt. Scott wrote short stories furiously to pay the bills, but became burned out and depressed. After arriving in Paris, they soon relocated to Antibes  on the French Riviera.
After six weeks, Zelda asked for a divorce. Scott at first demanded to confront Jozan, but instead dealt with Zelda's demand by locking her in their house, until she abandoned her request for divorce. Jozan did not know she'd asked for a divorce. He left the Riviera later that year, and the Fitzgeralds never saw him again. Later in life he told Zelda's biographer Milford that any infidelity was imaginary: "They both had a need of drama, they made it up and perhaps they were the victims of their own unsettled and a little unhealthy imagination.
He writes of lost illusions in The Great Gatsby as his lost certainty in Zelda's fidelity. The book reflected the dramatized pivotal aspects of his and Zelda's love, of courtship, break, restoration with financial success, and the Jozan betrayal: "I feel old too, this summer After the fight, the Fitzgeralds kept up appearances with their friends, seeming happy.
In September, Zelda overdosed on sleeping pills. The couple never spoke of the incident, and refused to discuss whether it was a suicide attempt. Scott returned to writing, finishing The Great Gatsby in October. They attempted to celebrate with travel to Rome and Capri , but both were unhappy and unhealthy. It was Zelda who preferred The Great Gatsby. Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald became firm friends, but Zelda and Hemingway disliked each other from their very first meeting, and she openly described him as "bogus,"  "that fairy with hair on his chest" and "phoney as a rubber check.
In an embellishment, the Fitzgeralds told the Hemingways that the affair ended when Jozan committed suicide. Toklas , Robert McAlmon and others. One of the most serious rifts occurred when Zelda told Scott that their sex life had declined because he was "a fairy" and was likely having a homosexual affair with Hemingway.
The year-old writer of novels of the Twenties died Sunday in Hollywood, Calif. On these computers, he provides the customer storage space for his own purposes. There he found much of the atmosphere which fills his first books. Fitzgerald, who died yesterday at the tragically early age of forty-four, continued to show "promise" all through his tortured career. Zelda found condoms that he had purchased before any encounter occurred, and a bitter fight ensued, resulting in lingering jealousy. It takes a sharp reader to notice that the final five accusatory sentences are Cline's, not Zelda's, as if Cline were now the medium through which her subject vindicates herself. In this she surprisingly has the unwitting support of Fitzgerald himself, who, while happy to use his marriage and his wife's mental instability for his novels, did all he could to prevent his wife's own attempt to fictionalise their relationship.
There is no evidence that either was homosexual, but Scott nonetheless decided to have sex with a prostitute to prove his heterosexuality. Zelda found condoms that he had purchased before any encounter occurred, and a bitter fight ensued, resulting in lingering jealousy. Literary critic Edmund Wilson , recalling a party at the Fitzgerald home in Edgemoor, Delaware , in February , described Zelda as follows:.
I sat next to Zelda, who was at her iridescent best. Some of Scott's friends were irritated; others were enchanted, by her. I was one of the ones who were charmed. She had the waywardness of a Southern belle and the lack of inhibitions of a child. She talked with so spontaneous a color and wit—almost exactly in the way she wrote—that I very soon ceased to be troubled by the fact that the conversation was in the nature of a 'free association' of ideas and one could never follow up anything.
I have rarely known a woman who expressed herself so delightfully and so freshly: she had no ready-made phrases on the one hand and made no straining for effect on the other. It evaporated easily, however, and I remember only one thing she said that night: that the writing of Galsworthy was a shade of blue for which she did not care. Though Scott drew heavily upon his wife's intense personality in his writings, much of the conflict between them stemmed from the boredom and isolation Zelda experienced when Scott was writing.
She would often interrupt him when he was working, and the two grew increasingly miserable throughout the s. Scott had become severely alcoholic, Zelda's behavior became increasingly erratic, and neither made any progress on their creative endeavors. Zelda had a deep desire to develop a talent that was entirely her own.
She had been praised for her dancing skills as a child, and although the opinions of their friends vary as to her skill, it appears that she did have a fair degree of talent. But Scott was totally dismissive of his wife's desire to become a professional dancer, considering it a waste of time. She rekindled her studies too late in life to become a truly exceptional dancer, but she insisted on grueling daily practice up to eight hours a day  that contributed to her subsequent physical and mental exhaustion.
In April , Zelda was admitted to a sanatorium in France where, after months of observation and treatment and a consultation with one of Europe's leading psychiatrists, Doctor Eugen Bleuler ,  she was diagnosed as a schizophrenic. The clinic primarily treated gastrointestinal ailments , and because of her profound psychological problems she was moved to a psychiatric facility, in Prangins on the shores of Lake Geneva.
She was released in September , and the Fitzgeralds returned to Montgomery, Alabama, where her father, Judge Sayre, was dying. Amid her family's bereavement, Scott announced that he was leaving for Hollywood. By February , she had returned to living in a psychiatric clinic. Over the course of her first six weeks at the clinic, she wrote an entire novel and sent it to Scott's publisher, Maxwell Perkins. When Scott finally read Zelda's book, a week after she'd sent it to Perkins, he was furious. The book was a semi-autobiographical account of the Fitzgeralds' marriage.
In letters, Scott berated her and fumed that the novel had drawn upon the autobiographical material that he planned to use in Tender Is the Night , which he'd been working on for years, and which would finally see publication in Scott forced Zelda to revise the novel, removing the parts that drew on shared material he wished to use.

Though the Great Depression had struck America, Scribner agreed to publish her book, and a printing of 3, copies was released on October 7, The parallels to the Fitzgeralds were obvious. The protagonist of the novel is Alabama Beggs like Zelda, the daughter of a Southern judge , who marries David Knight, an aspiring painter who abruptly becomes famous for his work. They live the fast life in Connecticut before departing to live in France. Dissatisfied with her marriage, Alabama throws herself into ballet. Though told she has no chance, she perseveres and after three years becomes the lead dancer in an opera company.
Alabama becomes ill from exhaustion, however, and the novel ends when they return to her family in the South, as her father is dying. Thematically, the novel portrays Alabama's struggle and hence Zelda's as well to rise above being "a back-seat driver about life" and to earn respect for her own accomplishments—to establish herself independently of her husband.
The language used in Save Me the Waltz is filled with verbal flourishes and complex metaphors. The novel is also deeply sensual; as literary scholar Jacqueline Tavernier-Courbin wrote in , "The sensuality arises from Alabama's awareness of the life surge within her, the consciousness of the body, the natural imagery through which not only emotions but simple facts are expressed, the overwhelming presence of the senses, in particular touch and smell, in every description.
In its time, the book was not well received by critics. It was the only novel she ever saw published. From the mids, Zelda spent the rest of her life in various stages of mental distress. Some of the paintings that she had created over the previous years, in and out of sanatoriums, were exhibited in As with the tepid reception of her book, Zelda was disappointed by the response to her art.
The New Yorker described them merely as "Paintings by the almost mythical Zelda Fitzgerald; with whatever emotional overtones or associations may remain from the so-called Jazz Age. Zelda now claims to be in direct contact with Christ, William the Conqueror, Mary Stuart, Apollo and all the stock paraphernalia of insane-asylum jokes For what she has really suffered, there is never a sober night that I do not pay a stark tribute of an hour to in the darkness.
In an odd way, perhaps incredible to you, she was always my child it was not reciprocal as it often is in marriages I was her great reality, often the only liaison agent who could make the world tangible to her. When their daughter Scottie was thrown out of her boarding school in , he blamed Zelda. Though Scottie was subsequently accepted by Vassar College , his resentment of Zelda was stronger than ever before.
Of Scott's mindset, Milford wrote, "The vehemence of his rancor toward Zelda was clear. It was she who had ruined him; she who had made him exhaust his talents He had been cheated of his dream by Zelda. After a drunken and violent fight with Graham in , Scott returned to Asheville. A group from Zelda's hospital had planned to go to Cuba , but Zelda had missed the trip. The Fitzgeralds decided to go on their own. The trip was a disaster even by their standards: Scott was beaten up when he tried to stop a cockfight and returned to the United States so intoxicated and exhausted that he was hospitalized.
Scott returned to Hollywood and Graham; Zelda returned to the hospital. She nonetheless made progress in Asheville, and in March , four years after admittance, she was released. Scott was increasingly embittered by his own failures and his old friend Hemingway's continued success. They wrote each other frequently until Scott's death in December Zelda was unable to attend his funeral in Rockville , Maryland. Zelda read the unfinished manuscript of the novel Scott was writing upon his death, The Last Tycoon. She wrote to literary critic Edmund Wilson , who had agreed to edit the book, musing on his legacy.
Zelda believed, her biographer Milford said, that Scott's work contained "an American temperament grounded in belief in oneself and 'will-to-survive' that Scott's contemporaries had relinquished. Scott, she insisted, had not. His work possessed a vitality and stamina because of his indefatigable faith in himself. As she had missed Scott's funeral, so she missed Scottie's wedding. By August she had returned to the Highland Hospital. She worked on her novel while checking in and out of the hospital.
She did not get better, nor did she finish the novel. On the night of March 10, , a fire broke out in the hospital kitchen. Zelda was locked into a room, awaiting electroshock therapy.
The fire moved through the dumbwaiter shaft, spreading onto every floor. The fire escapes were wooden, and they caught fire as well. Nine women, including Zelda, died. I think short of documentary evidence to the contrary that if people are not crazy, they get themselves out of crazy situations, so I have never been able to buy the notion that it was my father's drinking which led her to the sanitarium.
Nor do I think she led him to the drinking. Scott and Zelda were buried in Rockville, Maryland —originally in the Rockville Union Cemetery , away from his family plot. Only one photograph of the original gravesite is known to exist. That photo was taken in by Fitzgerald scholar Richard Anderson and was first published as part of a essay by fellow-scholar Bryant Mangum, "An Affair of Youth: in search of flappers, belles, and the first grave of the Fitzgeralds.
In , however, Scottie successfully campaigned for them to be buried with the other Fitzgeralds at Saint Mary's Catholic Cemetery. Inscribed on their tombstone is the final sentence of The Great Gatsby : "So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. At the time of his sudden death in , Scott believed himself a failure, and Zelda's death in was little noted. However, interest in the Fitzgeralds surged in the years following their deaths.
In , screenwriter Budd Schulberg , who knew the couple from his Hollywood years, wrote The Disenchanted , with characters based recognizably on the Fitzgeralds who end up as forgotten former celebrities, he awash with alcohol and she befuddled by mental illness. Scott Fitzgerald that rekindled interest in the couple among scholars. Mizener's biography was serialized in The Atlantic Monthly , and a story about the book appeared in Life magazine, then one of America's most widely read and discussed periodicals. Scott was viewed as a fascinating failure; Zelda's mental health was largely blamed for his lost potential.
A play based on The Disenchanted opened on Broadway in The book and movie painted him in a more sympathetic light than the earlier works. In , however, the history of Scott and Zelda's marriage saw its most profound revision in a book by Nancy Milford , then a graduate student at Columbia University. The book recast Zelda as an artist in her own right whose talents were belittled by a controlling husband. Thus in the s Zelda became an icon of the feminist movement—a woman whose unappreciated potential had been suppressed by patriarchal society.
A caricature of Scott and Zelda emerged: as epitomes of the Jazz Age's glorification of youth, as representatives of the Lost Generation, and as a parable about the pitfalls of too much success. Zelda was the inspiration for " Witchy Woman ",   the song of seductive enchantresses written by Don Henley and Bernie Leadon for the Eagles , after Henley read Zelda's biography; of the muse, the partial genius behind her husband F.
Scott Fitzgerald , the wild, bewitching, mesmerizing, quintessential " flapper " of the Jazz Age and the Roaring Twenties , embodied in The Great Gatsby as the uninhibited and reckless personality of Daisy Buchanan.
Zelda's name served as inspiration for Princess Zelda , the eponymous character of The Legend of Zelda series of video games. Series co-creator Shigeru Miyamoto explained, "[Fitzgerald] was a famous and beautiful woman from all accounts, and I liked the sound of her name. So I took the liberty of using her name for the very first Zelda title.
