An Enemy of the People By Henrik Ibsen Character Analysis Aslaksen

Aslaksen is the man of cautious good will. His constant comment involves "proceeding with moderation." He is afraid of offending anyone who is in authority, unless that person is some distant abstract person who cannot immediately affect him.
