Subject:        Hendiadys

I may be late to the party, but F. Kermode takes a pretty good look at
hendiadys in S. in his SHAKESPEARE'S LANGUAGE, 2000.  A partial list of
the fools suffered by Claudius would include:

Hamlet
Polonius
Gertrude
Laertes
Ophelia
Rosencrantz
Guildenstern
Osric

Has anyone tried to make hay of the name affinity between
Cornelius/Voltemand and Cornelius Agrippa/Voltemar (a sometimes
associate of the historical Dr. Faustus of the lower Germanies) or of
the collision between Hamlet out of Wittenberg and Laertes out of Paris?
