    (under the name of Atticus), which, year after it was written

    The eventual success of the first published installment of his Iliad in 1715 did not obliterate Pope’s just resentment against Addison and his “little senate,” and this resentment found expression in the damaging portrait of Addison (under the name of Atticus), which, year after it was written, was included in Pope’s Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot (1735), lines 193-214.

    Hello teachers,

    I know the meanings of each word but I can’t understand the blue part as a whole.
    Would you please clarify it to me?

    Many thanks in advance.

    It's missing something - it should be "the year/one year after it was written..."

    It's saying that Pope's resentment toward Addison took the form of a character named Atticus (who represents Addison), written about in Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot the following year.
