I'm sure it's been done -- there is a huge literature on Benjamin
(much of which is in German).  See the "Walter Benjamin Research 
Syndicate" site: 

A good place to look initially, though, might be the writings of
Benjamin and Adorno to and about each other.   E.g.  

* Adorno and  Benjamin _The Complete Correspondence_, 1928-40_ 
      (Cambridge,  Harvard University Press, 1999, 383 pp.) and; 

* Adorno's _Uber Walter Benjamin_ (Frankfurt am Main, Suhrkamp 
     Verlag, 1970; in German).
