Pablo Neruda would be my choice. The Chilean lyrical poet, the best love poet ever. A real man who can teach men about love. He writes in Spanish but survives translation. Get "20 love poems and a song of despair".
He was a man of courage too. He was Chilean ambassador to Spain and in Madrid when Franco's Nazis marched in. He behaved with heroic self possession - the courage of a poet, and not like the human shit that recalled him in disgrace for "bias".
He was the friend of Garcia Lorca, one of Spain's finest lyric poets, murdered by Franco in 1936. Lorca too translates well. Read "The faithless wife" from his famous anthology "The gipsy ballads" or try "Lines on the death of a bullfighter"
