definitely highlight and annotate as you read the book so when looking back you can look at any comments you've made.
examine significant statements/lines from different perspectives eg. what was the author's intention with them, what reaction may be evoked in the audience/reader
for tess especially keep an eye out for the tragic conventions and hardy's use of setting (as he describes it quite heavily in some parts!!); you're going to want to consider things like the movement from talbothays to flintcomb ash, and gothic setting during angel and tess's honeymoon and after her confession. lots of symbolism throughout the book.
