Your shell is messing with the quote characters.
THis looks like linux, since you use single quotes after the -e.
In this case, you need to escape (for the shell) every other single quote till the end of the argument.
What I usually do to avoid the isue is to use "qq" or "q" to qote the pieces that need quoting.
