The text makes an interaction between the writer and the reader, the reader’s understanding of a text in different historical periods is one of the methods used to interpret a text in the hermeneutic approach. Iranian mystic literature serves as cradle for the complexity and mysterious nature of textual meaning(s). Hafez, the great Persian sonneteer is one of the interpreters of textual meaning by creating different characters in the utopianistic realm of his poems, and introducing a new worldview to the readers. In the present study the writer seeks to examine and analyze Hafez’s attempts in his hermeneutic reading and his formation of characters named Rend and Pire Moghan based on the texture of his poems. The writer believes that Hafez considers the character – Rend - regarding to its negative meaning, as an interpretation to indicate the dualistic nature of the universe in his poems, because it seems that Rend is closer and compatible to the two – dimensional nature of man. Through his hermeneutic reading on Rend, Hafez gives the term a determined concept to match the paradoxical concept of conflicting nature of man.
