No adjustments have to be made to the literature: no shadow

Besides, even when great works of literature are used, major adjustments have to be made and, depending on the music of the composer concerned, they become "shadows" or minor works of the original texts.

P.S.: Did you find actual repeats in Wagner? ... I simply feel quite bored with the libretti

This is a sort repeat (Senta's Ballade)

Adjustments are the necessary evil...Shadows serve a purpose.

Andrea Maffei and Francesco Maria Piave's "Macbeth", to take one notable example, is not an adjustment of the original play for the sake of the Operatic work by Verdi? The libretto per se is not a "shadow" - in actual literature values- of the original Shakespearean play?..Which, however, serves well the purpose of building an Operatic success.

Minor adjustments and more...in not so strictly speaking.

One might claim that even the leitmotifs are some sort of sort repeats. (For every argument, there is a counter-argument and so on).
