  Subject: [Milton-L] Milton, Shakespeare and blank verse

  Dear scholars,
  After a rather long absence here I am again with a question –does anybody know whether there is any information available on a possible relationship between Shakespeare's and Milton's use of blank verse? In other words, is Milton in any way indebted to Shakespeare in this respect? Do you know of anyone who may have discussed the possibility? 
  As always, any ideas on this subject will be much appreciated.
  Best regards,
  Mario Murgia
