This collection of panurgic stories is a veritable handbook on amorous intrigue but it is vastly more facetious than the Heptameron or the Decameron. Its contents include Trust Not a Friend, The Way of All Wives, The Priest Who Would Not Be Castrated, A Mistake in the Dark, The Revenge Indelicate, Cuckolds Will Be Cuckolds, Adultery Interrupted, Tables Turned Upon Wives, and The Hermaphrodite, amongst others. The first part of the Merry Nights was published in Venice in 1550 and the second part in 1553. Besides this work only one other of Straparola's is known to exist - a collection of sonnets and other poems published in Venice in 1508.

Giovanni Francesco "Gianfrancesco" Straparola, also known as Zoan or Zuan Francesco Straparola da Caravaggio (ca. 1485?-1558), was an Italian writer of poetry, and collector and writer of short stories.

Giovanni Francesco "Gianfrancesco" Straparola, also known as Zoan or Zuan Francesco Straparola da Caravaggio (ca. Some time during his life, he migrated from Caravaggio to Venice where he published a collection of stories in two volumes called The Facetious Nights or The Pleasant Nights. This collection includes some of the first known printed versions of fairy tales in Europe, as they are known today.

After reading the Merry Nights through one can hardly fail to be struck by the variety of the themes therein handled. The judgments which have been dealt out to Straparola on the score of indecency by Landau, by the writer of the article in the Biographie Universelle, and by Grimm in his notes to Kinder und Hausmarchen, seem to be unduly severe. In certain places he is no doubt brutally coarse, but the number is not large.

After reading the Merry Nights through one can hardly fail to be struck by the variety of the themes therein handled. Indeed, it sometimes happens that he turns the tables on his betrayers; and, although Straparola is laudably free from the vice of preaching, he now and then indulges in a brief homily by way of pointing out the fact that violators of the Decalogue generally come to a bad end, and that his own sympathies are all on the side of good manners.
