I don't know of any such study, and would be interested to know if
there's a good one.

I suppose you're familiar with Shelley's own references to Milton in
"Ode to Liberty," the Preface to Prometheus Unbound (two important
ones there), and "A Defence of Poetry." Paradise Lost also plays a
prominent role in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, of course.

Don't forget the influence of Milton's divorce tracts (alluded to in
the Preface cited above) on Shelley's free love ideals and practice.
