I think the issue might be where you typed the code. I have typed code, in the past, inside a text editor that understands (rtf, doc, docx, tif, etc.). While these formats are great for text decoration, they are problematic for code environments, which is what I think the problem is here. Replace the quotation marks in the environment by removing them and typing them in the environment itself and you should see the code work.
