NEA English Lit introduction

So I'm starting my NEA now and I have my question which is:
“With reference to the Feminist section of the Critical Anthology, to what extent are Clytemnestra’s actions seen solely as an act of revenge”
But I just don't know how to write the introduction. What do you need to say in the introduction and how long does it need to be?

My advice would be:
1) Start with what your view is and more importantly, why? This can only be a 2-3 short sentences.
2) How does your argument link to feminist theory? Again, just a couple of sentences, but maybe add a quote from either a critic or the anthology. As you are discussing gender, this would be the perfect place to add context.
3) Maybe provide a road map for where you argument is going, touching on the points to discuss throughout the essay
