Advice for writing introduction (and conclusion) for humanities PhD dissertation?

I am trying to finish my PhD dissertation (humanities, not sciences). It's going well..chapters are all done, but now I'm trying to crank out the introduction and I haven't started the conclusion yet. I'm completely bogged down trying to summarize the arguments because the repetition of what I've already written in the chapters is making me insane. I can't seem to find new ways to say the same things and the exact same phrases and sentence constructions keep popping out. Does anyone who has written a PhD have tips for how to do the introduction? Conclusion advice would also be much appreciated.
