George T. Wright published a major essay, "Hendiadys and Hamlet" in _PMLA_ 96
(1981).  He received the award for the best essay published in _PMLA_ that
year.

An excellent essay on hendiadys in Shakespeare is George T. Wright's "Hendiadys
and Hamlet," PMLA March 1981: 168-93.  The article gives a clear account of
hendiadys itself, explores how the figure is used in Hamlet, and includes an
appendix listing how frequently hendiadys occurs in all Shakespeare's plays.
The essay is written with the intelligence, clarity, and scholarly rigor we've
come to expect from Wright.

In response to the query from Jenna Kordus:

George T. Wright has an article called "Hendiadys and Hamlet" in PMLA 96
(1981), 168ff; Frank Kermode also discusses the device at length in an essay
called "Cornelius and Voltemand: Doubles in Hamlet," in his _Forms of
Attention_ (Chicago, 1985).

I don't know offhand of broader discussions.  I hope this is helpful!

For Jennifer Kordus: I would think that any discussion of Shakespeare's use of
hendiadys should include George T. Wright's PMLA article, "Hendiadys and
Hamlet." I can't recall the year of publication.
