In the Voices in the Twilight, Hermans's second collection of work, presents poems, literary letters, and short stories. His verses explore a variety of topics, including politics, philosophy of life, ancestral hisotry, death, the afterlife, the salve trade and reparation, the Jamaican peasantry, education, nature, and romantic love—both requited and unrequited. Also included are three literary letters, one addressed to Hermans's uncle David who immigrated to Cuba and never returned to his native Jamaica. The collection's short stories are mostly set in the Anchovy area of Jamaica, near Montego Bay. This literary collection, featuring poetry, letters, and short fiction, considers a wide range of topics, from politics to romance to philosophy.
