[R] eval() parse() and problem with square brackets

i have problem with the following code (I'm using sqlQuery function from RODBC package):
eval(parse(text="g_1 <- sqlQuery(cnn_1, \"select aa from bb.[cc\\dd].ee\")")).

I get the error message:
"[RODBC] ERROR: Could not SQLExecDirect"
"S0002 208 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Invalid object
name 'bb.cc\dd.ee'."

It seems that R is replacing square brackets that are needed for database to execute query.

How can I force R to change its behavior and leave square brackets unchanged?

Any ideas appreciated.
