Description This paper examines two of the most famous Horatian Satires (2.3and 2.7), in order to shed light on the way that the poet can directhis satire not only against different types of characters (the avarice,the flatterer, the legacy-hunter), but also against himself. For thispurpose, he uses the two different satirical voices of Damasippus andDavus, and he inverts the roles of slave and master, so as toeventually achieve the creation of his own complex and ambiguouspersona, which displays many of the flaws criticized by the poethimself in other poems of the same collection.
