It works because it evaluates to the same string as the string without
the backslashses. Backslash is a quote character that specifies that
the character following the backslash should not be interpreted as a
special character (e.g. " or \). Since letters (in your case p and s) do
not need quoting nothing will be done (except removing the \).

The backslashes are completely unnecessary in this case.
