miss use of verb "back"? how to modifide this sentence?

This hallucination ironically echoes back her earlier claim to Macbeth that “little water clears us of this deed” (2.2 65)

See example:

She rubs her hands to wash out blood that does not exist which is analogous with her desire to cleanse her deeds "Out damned spot, out I say!" This hallucination ironically echoes back her earlier claim to Macbeth that "little water clears us of this deed" .

I think "back" is just redundant here.

You can simply say "This hallucination ironically echoes her earlier claim.." 

 

Hope this helps! :)
